    Default My Belated Confession (CTG)

    My Belated Confession

    I admit it -- I cheated: I took steroids
    -- they helped me to win all those awards,
    the Pushcart, the Pulitzer, and the Nobel
    -- even if it's ignoble of me to admit it.

    Although I claimed that I took no stimulants
    (here, I dab my eye) I've let down my family,
    all my fans and all aspiring poets who believe
    they can reach the pinnacle without a fix.

    I confess, I doped myself up real fine. . .
    I deserve to be stripped of everything.
    For my success, anonymity I would trade.


    ADVERTISING




    My megalomaniac malice was incontestible,
    my artful duplicity all too contemptible:
    I fully deserve the world's tirade.

    Very good Chris,

    got me thinking:

    Ah yes, Obama's Noble Prize,
    All gilded, there's no surprize,
    Perhaps some barbiturates tonight?
    and some Vodka, Gin and Ice?
