Reaction Poem for @wilw


I’m a Fan of a Fan 

We’re a strange lot, fans

Balancing enthusiasm with respectability

The former often winning

Though we are changing the definition of the latter


It helps when the object of our admiration

Is himself an admirer

Who knows what it is to love stuff

And tells everyone it’s ok to do just that


It takes courage to call attention to faults

To stand for things like mental health and equality

But good things don’t draw the same attention

Pulling them into the limelight just isn’t as sexy


So while I’m an aficionado of the actor

Draw inspiration from the author

And stand in agreement with the activist

I’m a fan of the fan
