Costume Drama


The stage is set

              The masquerade begins.

              Don’t forget your masks 

          And the elaborate costume.

  The charade starts as soon as you arrive.

  And you have to keep the facade

           Till its time to exit.

Don’t try to look for the real person,

            You will find none.

Acting has become their first nature

They have forgotten their true self.

     Blend in, in this costume drama

          Or you will stand exposed

And standing exposed under the arc lights 

             Is so damn lonely.
