Limelight~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Spotlight on Guitar” by Alfred Gockel

scrambling for the stage

self-indulgent pop culture

endless shadows parade

social media shallows

in search of some light

fifteen minutes of fame

unafflicted by virtue

unburdened by purpose

the husk of celebrity

turned into trophies of

cheap weightless plastic

that no one will cherish

while genuine heroes

work serving humanity

somewhere and everywhere

outside the worship of

popular beacons unfazed

by their tragic obscurity
