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 *** 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.

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