One Hit Wonder
Karen, I found something that might apply to me (ha ha) in a few weeks time!
This is approximately ten years old, and predates the whole celebrity culture; it's stil very valid I think, in a world where soapstars pontificate on world affairs.
One hit wonder.
Iím the latest one hit wonder,
Fame and fortune came my way.
Chat show hosts demand my presence,
I am on TV all day.
My opinion is now valued:
Do I buy from C&A?
What about the world of pop stars?
Do I have meals on a tray?
Is there anywhere I want to
Go for holidays and fun?
Do I need a bit of culture,
Or just sea and sand and sun?
Do I think schools are important?
Do they teach our kids enough?
Do three Rís still have a meaning?
Donít I think our youth is rough?
What about the solid traffic,
Clogging up our city streets?
Should there be more public transport,
With free tickets, special treats?
Can I show the breathless viewers
What it is that makes me tick?
No one listens to my answers,
Yet I never miss a trick.
And then, suddenly, itís over,
No one seems to find it strange.
Iím old news and not important,
Victim of relentless change.
Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye.
