The Show Must Go On


More by this author
A day before Mothers’ Day
In the greenroom backstage,
The janitor told us
That his mother had just passed away.

Broom in hand,
He swept the floor.
And I almost heard him whisper
That the show
Must go
On.

Above, the audience clapped.
They laughed as the curtain closed.
In the dark the crew changed the set
And the show
Did go
On.
