The theater, a venue of make believe, farce.

…..masked faces pretend loudly, acting.

The stage, a wide canvas for display, unreal.

…..movements planned for best effect, acting.

The lights, placed for attention, misdirection

…..making people look away from truth, acting.

The actors hard to spot off-stage, pretend

…..their masks are cleverly hidden here, acting.

The theater, everywhere people interact, life

…..their costumes to suit each situation, acting.

The audience, all who they call friend, believing

…..they weave reality out of smoke and words, acting.

The curtain, well it never comes down, disappointing

…..there are those who will never see through, the acting.
