The curtain-raiser


When the curtain falls
Actors are delivered
From their roles,
From a pack of lies;
They become free
From the cage,
But only temporarily;
For when the stage reopens
Before the audience
For the next performance,
The players become bound
Within their profound scripts,
Dialogues, actions of yesterday
Repeat in time and space.
Only a momentary wonderment
‘Ah! If it were to change,
It has to’, but in the end
Nothing is above entertainment.
