We play this ugly game
on The Stage of Life;
in front of a huge audience
imagined by our own confused ideas.
We spit in each others faces
losing our minds
– selling our soul to the Devil –
for those five seconds
of Fame

Then, when it comes to the last line of our filthy crime
we all start to shiver with those pages unsorted
unfinished business
with life itself.
“What good is there to say?”
But the prompter whispers ;
“I forgot my manuscript.”
