In the future
everyone will be famous
for 15 minutes

That’s what Andy Warhol said
it’s still true
even though he’s dead

I want it
I want it

Oh give me a piece of plastic
a piece of plastic clear

That’s what they all want
recognition
fame

Am I now
just like them?
So addicted

To the validation of others
that something so meaningless
becomes a valued treasure?
