A poem by Sean

I wrote a poem. If I had more time, it would flow better and would be more mature.  But I think it does the trick.  Let me know what you think!

 

Philanthropist or Narcissist

A celebrity appears on a PSA,

Is it an earnest appeal or just a way to say

That they care about the world issues?

A fake smile and a box of tissues

Draw attention to the starving poor

But is this a good thing? I’m still unsure.

Bono, Oprah, Pitt, and Jolie

Give their heart, soul, and money

To help out the less fortunate

And work to make a world aid conglomerate.

 

In a society focused on reputation,

It’s hard to tell who shows true dedication.

Celebrities strive to associate their faces

With orgs and charities in all the right places.

That will make them look the best in the public’s eye.

Their actions are deceiving and sly.

A celebrity is not an expert on world news,

Just a rich person with biased views.

Don’t believe everything you hear

From a pretty face and a voice so clear.

 

Personally I find this involvement to be superficial

These people act like a world health official.

They are told what to say to the media,

So do your own research on Wikipedia.

Of course, these countries benefit from the philanthropists,

But it’s sad to see these celebrity self-serving narcissists.
