Hollywood Starlet

A Poem by Mari' Emeraude

Your ship will sink and your star will fall
So you'd better be prepared
I hope you're well seated when you hit that wall
And the spotlight dims its glare
You step from your car like a debutante'
You have everything you could ever want
Have you stopped to consider the ones you snub
Are the ones that have put you there?
The diamond bracelet on your wrist
That accentuates your tan
Rakes the rocks across your skin
As you "shoo" away your fans
You've got more wealth than you could ever spend
But ya don't seem to have it when ya hear from a friend
And ya "won't be signing any autographs"
At the festival de' Cannes
You must be aware that you're gettin' old
And ya bore the paparazzi (or so I'm told)
It's a pity your grace can't act for you
As well as your ego can.

This is very well penned! It cuts like a knife and is VERY well said. This could also be said for the athletes of our time. Again, you make me think!!! WOW!!

Thank you for reading, Belle
ouch - I am wondering if this one is directed at all of Hollywood or you have a particular person in mind?

stated as one person's rather cynical view world well. i like to think that some in Hollywood learn a little more than acting along the way.

Direct indeed - or as you said of the last your read of mine - kinda hit the nail on the head stuff here :D X

haha yeah, I just wish I had the money to go with it ;p
When the glare of the spotlight blinds the perception of the fading stars, sadly, they are the last to be able to see themselves falling.

my pleasure.
The difference between a starving artist and a successful one are the footprints across the backs of the fans.
