Show Must Go On

August 12, 2008
By Melody Reams, Wellington, OH

enough is enough
just let it go
stop playing around
get on with the show
you're stuck in a scene
can't continue the act
the audience screams
why do you keep coming back
they wait quite some time
for a twist in the plot
but it all goes back
to the very same spot
the audience members
leave one by one
they've given up
this is no longer fun
I was last and alone
sitting in the crowd
convinced you'd continue
if I stuck around
but now I see
this is all it will be
you're trapped inside
your own memory
if this play ever ends
story ever unfolds
I won't still be here
it can stay forever untold

i thought this was crazy awesome. the imagery that it put in my head was very fun and illusive, but playful. well done!
