King Compton

are you blinded yet?
have screams
deafened
those super star
ears?
did they call you
artist
prince
or just another number one?

oh honey boohoo
so lost among the titans
they’ll stomp
crush
you

keep smiling
though
keep fighting
keep that head up high
they say
you can only fall
when people aren’t
watching
sell-out soul
show them
what you got

but when you
crash
land
they’ll hand you wings
they’ll send you
straight up
fill their crystal cups
to cheer
that name
they almost forgot

and maybe
another light
sky high
is all
you ever worked for
