“strive to keep your privacy, your powerball obscurity, your raffled anonymity”

Art of Quotation

Q: What’s Fame Got To Do With It?

. ix

please hide my name

they’ll soon harass

grab all they can

descend en masse

. x

sing it solo

fame’s hard to swallow

“puts you there where

things are hollow” *

. xi

chorus

strive to keep your

privacy, your

powerball obscurity

your raffled

anonymity

your sovereign self

humanity

. xii

declares the judge

like winning lotto *

“Live free or die”

that’s my motto *

.

The final question of three

– Douglas
