Highlights

  • Oh, “plus ça change," you say, “how cheap is fame!"
    The quarter of an hour, that great Warholian
    Presentiment now seems a distant flame,
    A relic best housed deep in the Ashmolean
    Now fifteen seconds is the current span
    Of most celebrity, then all eyes pan
    Rapaciously away with clicking mice
    To see who next has fallen from a taxi,
    Whose diet now is Goji juice and rice,
    Whose new tattoo describes mount Cotopaxi
    Erupting up their backs in plumes of ink
    Or who can’t seem to drive without a drink.
