Poetry

Subterfuge


I think I'd rather hear from ordinary folk
Than yet another hero on a magazine show
I'm sorry your career has led you to this
A wringing of hands over cutting of wrists

Except you are an actor just playing out a role
Imploring us to talk, yet saying nothing more
I am not inspired by your drama queens
Nor your minor pop star washed up old has beens

I think I'd rather hear from ordinary folk
Who suffer through the drudge, but still yet live with hope
