Feet of clay

editorial image

We did it with the film stars,

We did it with the sports stars,

And some politicians in the same way.

We made idols of them,

With nobody above them,

Till we found they all had feet of clay.

But who of us could play the part,

If even we were quite as smart?

Which of us has the perfect heart in our world today?
