paparazzi (Better get some Ice, cause I'm hot!)



The lights
The cameras
Anywhere, at times even
Everywhere
The paparazzi
Waiting, anticipating
My every move.
Except where they're off limits.
(Likely, but how?)
(And bodyguards, they all figure out
how to get paid. The Wealth of the Net! Untapped. Proving I was here.)


Get Ready...
It's Exciting.
Respecting me,
Loving me
Try so
Hard to get that one
Shot.
That "million dollar shot".
The man-
Charley, Charley Edward.
So well known and
Everywhere on the web- the net (He owns it.)
In every social media.
Overflowing from the metaverse (His portion run perfectly.)
So costly, but oh so worth it.

Take a chance.
"But what's in it for me? And my expertise?"

The Fame
The glam
The touch down
The goal
The pay
The game.

Who will win,
the shot heard round the world?
We'll figure that all out, tomorrow.
But for now find Charley Edward and tastefully shoot.

About this poem

How would a star of stars ever afford paparazzi? Do it for me he pleads. (This isn't about my personal photographer Jason Day) And the reason: Who everyone is, Fame, The Future, Entertainment, Controversy, Wealth, Interest, and just being Alive. The cameras, and the intended audience, my livelihood! :)
