Whatever Famous

Whatever “famous” was, or is,
It carries with it quite a price:
For critics come, from everywhere,
To douse the glow of fame with ice

And tell the famous person that
They never were that great, or fine —-
Like maggots on the carcass of
A lion


(House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.)
