Takes More Than Paying One's Electricity Bill

It can be wonderful to see one's name in lights.
To shine bright...
With each letter in its correct place.
And that delights.

But to stay bright consistently,
Night after night...
Takes more than paying one's electricity bill!
And an appetite to keep one's name seen in lights.

'Where's the beef? '

Well...
I've decided to go vegetarian.
I'm going to try that diet for a while.
To get a new perspective on things.
