Posthumous Fame

Some become wealthy and famous in the easy way
But for some 'tis much harder that's life as some say
And some are born as anonmyous and poor and that's how they remain
In the Human World many destined for to lose for a few for to gain
And one fact of human life since facts never lie
Is that some become famous after they die
But long after you die if many your greatness does recall
To you that will not be of any value at all
What use to the dead when the living remember them for their fame
Since anonymity and renown to them all the same
When their praises are sung the dead cannot hear
They are past joy and laughter and sorrow and fear
Posthumous fame of no use to the dead
I am only saying here what has often been said.
