Fame is Fickle
What I think she seeks to convey is that fame is a fickle food we all
desire, but once we get a taste of it, we change and forget about our
origins and traditions: we become narcissitic and forget about family. We,
then become too dependent on fame like a drug - our fan base - for without
it, we lose all that status and praise. Just look at Brittney Spears: fame,
and the paparazzi have broken her soul and personality to crumbs and to
practical schizophrenia. Thus, herein, lay the ironic caw of fame. The
crows are a smart bird who know foods via experience and would choose corn,

In my freshman English class, English 102, my partner and i are doing
research on this poem. We have the top half of it covered; and this is
basicly saying that fame can change everyday. you may have it one day, but
not the next. Because the term "Fickle" means Constantly changing. We
havent quit figured out the bottom half yet, but once we get it, we will be
sure to post it.

Fame can consume you and turn you into someone that you really dont want to
be. it changes you, for the good or for the worst no one really knows but
it does change you.
the old you dies away and your someone totally different then who you were.

I felt like she was describing how fame can take away the privacy and
stability of a "normal" life. This seems to fit, because she was so

What she want to express is :fame is the thing outside yourself,you strive
for it all your life,but in the end ,you die without it .Just enjoy what
your striving process,do not care other's critique and compliment.Do
