Short 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
