* Kvothe, at one point in his narrative comprising the majority of Patrick Rothfuss's ''TheWiseMansFear'', mentions that in order to survive a trip, he "begged for crusts, stole a man's shoes, and recited poetry." He's been poor his whole life, often starving, but as a musician he's disdainful of poets, finding them useless and indulgent, so for him poetry was actually much, ''much'' more humiliating than begging and stealing.

* In Literature/KingDork, after Tom and Sam Hellerman's band performs at a school talent show, Sam sells a zine with lyrics to their songs. A lot of them criticize the mean assistant principal, Mr. Teone. Tom mentions in passing that one of the songs is called "Mr. Hitler, Mr. Stalin, Mr. Teone." ([[spoiler: After it's revealed that Mr. Teone was filming underage students having sex and selling the tapes, it's not quite as much an example of this trope - but still an extreme comparison.]])
