The Entertainer


She is a thespian in her own production;
an understudy of her own creation.
A comedy?
A tragedy?
Sit back and howl incessantly while she scatters her pawns across the stage.
What you see,
and what she feels – mismatching.
Yet, her comedic impersonator squares up to a truer character.
The humor of it is only human –
whimsical actually.

The screenplay is jubilant
forging a captivating alliance with her audience.
It is deliberate, she probably wants ratings.
In an honest review,
her self-targeted vengeance reaches other-worldly resentment
composed and left for charades.
The smoke screens only for effect.
We will see you at the next show!
Love,
the Entertainer.
