A Masquerade

Filing in by threes and twos
Colorful dresses and tattoos
Each wears a mask and no one knows
The concealed reality of the faces unknown

Laughing and giggling down they dance
Flirting and snorting on they prance
Never once do they stop to ask
What truly lies behind those gaudy masks

Into the night, the absence of light
“Continue the ball!” they presume it alright
The hollow laughs, the hollow smiles
You would think it would tire them after a while

Sparkles and beads and feathers and glitter
Flashes of lights and outbursts of laughter
The striking of midnight sadly ends the ball
And they never once took off their masks after all

Filing out by threes and twos
Colorful dresses and tattoos
Each wears a mask and no one knows
The concealed reality of the faces unknown

So tell me, dear reader
Is your life –
A Masquerade
