Clever and well written piece.I really liked how powerful this was, with pertinent points about fame throughout. The last line wrapped it up securely.

I enjoyed this very much. Thanks.

God bless~
It's like you are a magician with words, how you can slice the truth in two, with flowing, delicate grace.

And I loved the title.
I really like the meter and flow of this piece. The only thing that hung me up, and probably nobody else, is that in one verse you refer to fame as a debtor that you have to pay and in another as a form of currency. I realize that's probably petty, but it made me go back and re-read that part to make sure I understood, and by then it had interrupted the smoothness of the piece. I'm probably just too literal for poetry. :)
Greetings -

I have one word for this: superb!
Nicely written, and a great message at the end. Love the title.
Love it! This is my favorite line:

A semi-trailer full of fame
Might buy a crust of bread!

Congrats on your Editor's Choice! :D
