Let me introduce to you
Without any further adieu (ado)

The star of tonight’s show
Who is so very eager to go

He has been chomping on the bit
To be on this stage so brightly lit

Making his first appearance
For such an esteemed audience

He has rehearsed for days
In the hope of receiving the praise

For his Tony-worthy performance
Which to him is of the utmost importance

His lines have been memorized
Every possibility analyzed

He is such a professional
He is almost obsessional

His costume impeccable
He looks most respectable

This is his moment as he walks onstage
Everyone cheers, they are on the same page

He takes the microphone from the stand
When suddenly it is grabbed from his hand

What the heck said he
To the person he could see

You are embarrassing me in front of everyone
To which the voice answered, Sir, your fly is undone

        Yes I need to write some happier stories and poems, I do tend to get a bit grim sometimes. When I read them to my mum she always jokes and asks me when the main character is going to die! 🙂

        That’s so funny! Poems are not always representative of what we are feeling, or are they? Hmmmm! Lol

        I do hope not. But i wonder sometimes if there isn’t something subconscious about it all. 🙂
