If I Were Famous

If I were famous – wanting to remain unseen I’d have a secret way to leave my house. While I’d sneak off as quiet as a mouse, I’d have a “double” leave by limosine! My house would have a pool inside and out! My rooms would be so lovely and pristine because I’d have myself (without a doubt) a trusted staff to garden and to clean. I’d use my money for good causes, and I’d travel in the comfort of my jet. Despite all that, I wouldn’t act all grand, for never domineering could I get! Perhaps a movie critic I would be. I’d have a screening room. Friends I’d invite to view new movies in my house with me. At Oscars, in attendance I would be. Though famous, I’d be like I am today - still down to earth and working with my mind. A homebody most likely I would stay, and always I’d remember to be kind.

Andrea, I really enjoyed your musing about the life of the rich and famous. I loved the way your rhymes fluctuated from stanza to stanza. The rhymes did not interrupt, but contributed to, the flow of your quatrains. Nice work!
