Fame And Shame

Some men they have climbed to the summit of fame
But for one crime or other plummeted to the depths of shame
And spend years of their lives behind a locked prison gate
For to pay for their sins as guests of the State
Though different by nature and different in name
They are different in most ways those known as fame and shame
Though not unlike love and hate shame is fame upside down
A prisoner today the once most popular person of the town
Some wealthy and famous people who were honored in story and song
Have served time in prison and in life have gone wrong
Fame and wealth can corrupt as some are known for to say
In life from the path of righteousness it is not hard to stray
Some who have stood on the high summit of fame
Are now in a jail cell and living in shame.
