Well, if I write it

they will read it

and I will become well known

and everyone will know me


but this would

be terrible

if it ever happened


I doubt that I would

ever wear celebrity well

It isn’t my cup of tea

to be in the spotlight


I don’t stay well

under the microscope

scrutiny unnerves me


I don’t wanna be

an example

or an excuse

for unsavory behavior


I try to be true

to what I am

but dirty humor

doesn’t always play well


drug references

without apology

and bitter sarcasm

masked in dry wit


I guess I ain’t

gonna be a role model

what with my behavior

and bad attitude


It’s just as well

I don’t wanna be like you

and I don’t want you

to try to be like me
