I’m Nobody! Who are You?
by Emily Dickinson

I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us -don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

… I bet there’s many a celebrity wishes he wasn’t a frog (erm ..?)
