Star

Scarred by the glitter
through morning till dusk
Take a polaroid
and suddenly you’re a star
take it, take the car for a ride
You cannot hide
from the flash bulb, the flash bulb
that the earth orbits round
I shiver to the sound of another Mary Hart morning
Celebrity is dying now let it rest
No more beating your chest for a piece of the cake
No more wishing and hoping to be burnt by the stake
when you see what’s right and wrong and truly vulgar
you will never, ever, ever want to linger in a world
of spit and shine
In the real world you’ll never be left behind.
