  • It was MY moment of fame,
    An actor’s first claim,
    Selling a product
    And building a name.

    But the spotlight endorsed
    A child, of course,
    So, my moment of stardom
    Took a turn for the worse!

    Upstaged by innocence.
    “And that’s a wrap, folks!”

    HAH! They semi-joke never work with children or animals, they will upstage you every time. Nicely done.

    I like your sense of humour. It shows in this piece. I especially liked upstaged by innocence.
