All the World’s a…Stage

Cinema, Curtain, Theater, Film

life
is one long
GIGANTIC
DIVERSE
INSANE
COLORFUL
DEADLY
PLAY
if you doubt that
for even a second
just think about the
WORDS
we use to
DESCRIBE
others
did you see the way he
ACTED
I never saw anyone
ACT
that way before
oh, what an
ACTOR
he is
it’s as if she’s
ACTING
out someone else’s life
surely he
STAGED
that entire situation
you know he’s in the
LAST ACT
of his life
I think he talks
like he’s reading from a
SCRIPT
and on and one we go
using DRAMA QUEEN
words to describe
SHEREOS
and HEREOS
and
CURTAIN CALLS
or the
FINAL CURTAIN
or
her life was so amazing
she received a
STANDING OVATION
or let’s
BRING DOWN THE CURTAIN
on that idea
what a
FLOP
but she got
RAVE REVIWS
while he
ACTED
as if it was all about him
well
I think by now
you must know what I mean
we all
ACT OUT
ACT UP
and some of us
refuse to
ACT PROPERLY
but no matter how you look at it
it’s all about
ACTING
because we are all actors
on a global stage
trying to get a
FRONT ROW SEAT
to te action
following a script
written by others
and we often
ACT INAPPROPRIATELY
because some of us
want to write our
own bloody
SCRIPT
I think that’s the
TICKET
don’t you

    True! I always said about my daughter that she was “going for the Oscar”.
