STARve Yourself Silly

Pick a ‘cause’ and then lecture the press
On why this ole world’s such a mess
With a high school drop-out degree
"So what? I’m a STAR! I’m just… ME”

Oh the charities your slick agent books!
How bout giving when nobody looks?
Slip five thousand in cash for a start
In that can at your local Wal-Mart
THAT'S right, you don’t shop there! My-my
(“Oh, they abuse their workers that’s why”)

Feed that starving, unfortunate child!
Who grovels in the African wild
"Um, that’s why I’m so pale and so thin
I SOOOH much identify with them
So I'm fasting in protest ya know"
(I've donated my ten-room Chateau) 

"SO sorry, gotta go, here’s a wink
Got a date to go scream at my shrink"

* Re-titled, edited and extended version of a previous post...I make no judgments here because I know that this is a disease which affects many people...
