Los Angeles Elbow Grease

In this ever-changing world of entertainment any day An artist could accomplish what he once thought Was an impossible feat with a little elbow grease And dedication you may gain a reputation For being remarkable you'll see With the right preparation there's no limitations On who you could become but don't be dumb With all of the money that you receive because Bankruptcy comes in the blink of an eye And You could become a where are they now rerun Watching VH1 with a barrel in your mouth Ready to decorate your couch with the back of your scalp Because you're financially f***** It's a Fickle industry That can give you everything But take it away in a matter of days Especially because It's so incredibly hard to obtain longevity y'all definitely shouldn't expect to be in the spotlight indefinitely trust Fame is a flammable entity that many see go up in Flames Yes it will eventually be gone Having a rockstar mentality Has the mortality rate around the same Of an insane persons grasp on reality.... low Don't go traveling Roads that rapidly Lead you to the middle of nowhere don't go Chasing that rabbit all the way down that gigantic hole there no Because that rabbit is faster than any bastard You've ever encountered and the chances Of you catching his ass are below fair & it's so rare i swear That you're just better off Staying at home there

This poem rings a bell. It is interesting how fast the public falls in and love with their stars. "It's a Fickle industry That can give you everything But take it away in a matter of days Especially because It's so incredibly hard to obtain longevity y'all definitely shouldn't expect to be in the spotlight indefinitely"

Remarkable rhymes, John, well placed and for full effect. Fame is addicting yet harder to find a fix. Have a great day.
