Rock Star

Standing in front of the mirror

a tennis racket as a guitar,

looking back at you

is a world famous rock star.

As the music starts

you contort your face,

nodding your head to

the rhythm of the drums and bass.

You swing your arm

in time for the opening riff

whilst checking yourself in the mirror

to admire your quiff.

You spent hundreds of hours

living this fantasy,

a small town boy who became

the biggest star in the galaxy.

Until you were abruptly

brought back down to earth

by your sniggering sisters,

the object of their mirth.
