Got off the phone with a celebrity friend,
Known widely for the various verses he has penned,

Primarily a journalist with a creative bent of mind,
He’s dabbled in genres of every kind,
Scripts, lyrics, papers and the radio,
In every medium he seemed to glow,

He always did have the flair,
Of being newsy and creative, a combination rare,

It was good to speak to him after all these years,
I haven’t really been in touch with my peers,

However, the initial enthusiasm seemed to fizzle from his side,
When he learned I wasn’t on any career astride,

Well what does he know what I am into,
Am sure he’d be proud if only he knew
