Give me the draw card
Give me some time
I’ll bring the people
You bring the crime
Give me the headline
Give me a star
They’ll come to see this
Travel afar

Give me a tagline
Zeitgeist is fed
They want their fashion
They’re easily led
Give me the draw card
Marry in haste
All of their hunger
Soon laid to waste

    Helen rush this over to TMZ with a four-figure price tag! Nice work and a reminder that the poet took care of social commentary long before newsprint and TV.
