on fame

fame must be overcome
as obscurity must be
overcome
but
fame must be especially
overcome
and a good way to
overcome it
is to
realize
that those who
made you famous
could be
and
most probably are
an idiot mass of
numbers
that
add up to
bad taste
bad choice, a
mis-reading of
what you   are
attempting to
do.

fame does not
necessarily denote
talent:

it’s too often
the result of
the mediocrity of
the masses
which over-enhances
and
over-inflates
that
which is only
the mediocrity of
its entertainers and
Artists (?).

some say that
there can only be one judge
of the work
and that is the one
who has done
it
but
unfortunately
there too
the error can be
and most often
is
total and
fatal.

fame must be handled
like any other
serious
malady:   you must
continue to live and
work
in spite of
it, never because
of
it.
