Starry Eyed Fame

Many in the limelight aim
Despite diverse back rounds they came
   Whether a regular Joe Schmoe 
   or a ma dames

For stratospheric fame
   Sought after imprimatur 
   like some competitive games
Possibly an ordinary Jonny comb lately
   or the common Jimmy James schmuck oh
   Maybe known by some handi
   capping them as lame

Transcending unsightly infliction 
   unwilling to let being maim
(This from drafted 
    scarred acquiring above name)
Yet overcoming any stigma or shame

Proving that prejudice 
   against bloody carnage 
   can replaced with pride 
   against cooling jets fiery angry flame
With self-acceptance 
   sans love of self would tame.
