The Demoralization Demonstration Act of 2013

Started the year off as a pillar of commercial high society

Put upon every awards show like a prized ham

Dancing until dawn with the most desirable bachelors

Who could turn any woman into a puddle of buttered mush

Considered to be a personal favorite of Roger Ebert's

Someone who was even on his speed dial

The critical tables have turned over rather quickly

Over the course of a few rapid weeks

Been chased all over Hollywood and Beverly Hills

With a pitchfork and a lethal tongued Gene Siskel

Placed on every Worst Dressed List by Mr. Blackwell

And the wickedly tough Joan Rivers

Who always had a comment for everything

Latest venture got a failing grade on Rotten Tomatoes

Placed in the same disgusting category as Lindsay Lohan

Even though there's much more substance involved in your case

With a B.A. in English and a minor in History to prove it

Ready to move into the next phase of the week

Where I'll be a lot more like Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious

Than being on the run from reality in To Catch a Thief

Stuck with being a little slightly mad around the edges

And looking to play catch up in the meantime

Trying to make the new year a much better one

Only time will tell which direction it goes.

      Good use of curiosity. Very high impact because of it. Good demonstration of persuasive technique. If you had asked the reader to do something appropriately related I think he would have done it. Make use of that obvious skill in that way, is my advice and reaction.
