Curtain Falls on Midnight - All Midnights in the World
The Prince song is "All the Midnights in the World"

My poem uses these lyrics from that song:

"A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends
"

The Curtain Falls on Midnight

After Shakespeare's lines are spoken,
A Prince's rehearsal nearly done,
The curtain lowers one more time,
lead character follows the sun

"A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends
"

Can a lone true heart make amends?
Simple as a walk in the park?
Fashion a life of fortune, fame,
Bicycle the light into dark?

"A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends
"

To the sky, we look for answers
After some moments' recompense
Deception gets the last word out,
Nothing further ever makes much sense

"A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends
"

Vertigo latches unto me,
Stand up straight in the endeavor
Exit forever from this ghastly stage
I never was oh quite that clever!

"A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends
"
