We use the word ‘notorious’ in terms of infamy
Well known for all the wrong reasons
Ned Kelly was a notorious bushranger
Skase and Palmer are notorious fraudsters

Have no wish to be either notorious or famous
Being ‘different’ but ordinary is fine by me!
Each country and era have their villains
Then we tend to glorify them when they’ve gone

Guess when the pain they’ve caused has eased
the next generation forgets they were diseased!
They make for big headlines and movies
as we have a weird fascination with villains

Daily Prompt:  Notorious
