Faux Celebrity

People often talk about 
the heat and torture of hell
I'm currently living in one 
with the only excitement here daily
is the Courthouse Bell

Politics hidden like a stitch
People wearing costumes camouflaged
to look like the rich

Last names worn as a badge of fame
Fake celebrities walking amongst
the poor people
While their banking accounts are the same

    Not just talk, but emulate too often.
