Why do the charmed play hide and seek
and flee the story in the wings,
as if disporting on the stage
could set alight the curtain fringe?
Illusion's limelight's highly prized
and channelled sentiment extolled
If structured context cramps the style,
another's script makes players bold
The play's the thing, so says the Bard,
our psyche's lineaments laid bare
We revel in the story told
and all vicarious life is there
The Safety Curtain functions well
as acts meet their appointed ends
Perplexing shadows haunt the wings
Beyond, the brave face skylit lands
So who'll forsake bewitching masks
and don his natural God-given role
and tread the existential boards
and free the glittering eyelets' soul?
