Irksome to me

There are some awesomely talented writers

Who all deserve utmost respect,

But some people for some reason

Just can’t bring themselves to do it,

They can’t separate the artist

From the person they represent,

This was the same with Oscar Wilde

Who they judged more about being gay,

Than these few did about his artistic works

Now JK Rowling’s suffers the same way,

It seems having talent and fame

And by creating yourself a name,

That some say you’ve no right to say

And views that maybe stray,

From whatever it is they believe

That’s forced down the throats of you and me,

It appears the only opinion that counts is theirs,

So be careful and don’t get caught in their transgender crosshairs.

  1. Unfortunately, part of being an artist is creating the image you want your fans to see. People get used to that image and once you deviate from it and show a more “human” side of you, people begin to change how they see you. They want the fantasy of you, not the real you that has beliefs, or opinions about the world sadly. It’s really difficult to draw the line sometimes between artist and human being with causes they are passionate about. Some fans may not agree with the cause and curse the artist’s work because of it. Really love the message you presented in this poem, Faux. Makes you think. 😊👏🏼

    1. Thanks very much, I am so glad you get it. It’s a shame when people can’t respect an author’s personal views and as a result not only attack them but then also their work. Sad really. 💛🙏Faux

      1. It is sad. I think we can so easily forget at times that artists are still humans. They have their beliefs like anyone else and we may not agree with them, but you can’t deny their gifts and talents. If you love the work, love it. If you hate the personal viewpoints, hate that. Not the work. You’re so very welcome, Faux. I always love the nuggets of gold you place on here for us to read. ♥️☺️✨
