The Idea of Celebrity

in this culture
is utterly insane.

insane that we would
lift up these people who
end up largely from wealth
and the luck of the draw
being incorporated into a cult
of celebrity

the likes of which most of us
and me certainly
could never tolerate
without either falling into
or a callous disdain for the
human race
the intrusive nature of fame
I know I personally
could not take the intrusion
though I certainly am
privy to being a voyeur
to some degree

but not nearly as
much as most.
