“Another Path to the House of Fame” [from The New House of Fame–by Paul “Whitberg” Burgess]
A risky *path that’s hard to recommend
Is being known as one who coldly kills.
Infamy’s said to be a loyal friend
To stardom-seekers lacking wealth and skills.
Since murderers are found at ev’ry bend,
You’ll need a crime where blood profusely spills.
The surest way to drive reporters wild
Is murdering a precious little child.
*While scandalous trials make one famous, the book deals and interviews benefit only those who are exonerated.
