Glorious not Notorious – a poem.

People seem to seek fame more

Than they ever truly did before.

The Kardashians, example one,

Lacking any talent, none,

Embrace infamy instead

Becoming something we all dread.

Lacking skills so glorious

They prefer being notorious.

A sex tape carefully divulged

A sordid love affair indulged.

I hope one day they’re relegated

To the cess pool they instigated.

Forgotten like they deserve,

We’ll remember instead the brave who serve,

And those who really entertain

Or leave a legacy humane.

The great and good, the loving kind.

Who die but leave great works behind.

For those we should truly weep

And the notorious we’ll bury deep.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. “I hope one day they’re relegated

    To the cess pool they instigated.” Love this line. Enjoyed your poem very much. 🙂
