A writer’s job is to tell you the facts
as he or she sees.
And sometimes that writer turns out
to be right and becomes famous for a while,
And the books fly off the shelves.
Money pours in like the days of old
when the people found buckets of gold .
But, what happened to the writers
who ended up wrong and dismissed
Forgotten and passed on,
Whatever happened to them?
I guess they went on writing the facts,
In their own funny language.
