A poem about being an entertainer
Listen everyone the show must go on
Until the audience is finally gone
We must sing and we must dance
Revealing more than what appears at first glance
Masks and costumes
Doors to painted rooms
We are the entertainers
The lions and the tamers
We are what's on offer
We are their chauffeurs
War and love
Peaceful white doves
All an illusion to keep them enthralled
To keep their vision closed and walled
Death looms ominously on everybody
To keep them distracted is our duty
The show must go on even after our death
We must entertain them until their final breath
