Scrapping Off Popularity

They take
Their chisels
Scraping off
Chunks
Of his fame
 .
Taking
The shiny piece
And displaying it
Like a tiny jewel
On their person
Saying for all to see
That it is theirs
 .
They take the sparkle
The glory
And spread it around
Under the guise
That this
Will make it more popular
That taking sparkles
Will spread glitter
 .
Yet with this backwards belief
The copper
Was scrapped off the penny
And the naked metal
Shines below
 .
He made something wonderful
But with their constant tagging
And mentions
He is quickly fading
Into the silver grey
Background of pages
 And edges
Of forgotten memory
