Call To Court

A call to court

and all are gathered,

costumes on

and masks in place.

Stumbling through

choreographed steps

to play out the scene,

bring on the show.

Parts played out

now all are beckoned,

incognito loosens self-restraint

and those too genteel...

well, they’ll faint from shock,

or perhaps the heat

from heavy costumes,

stifling masks,

and the dance that never ends.

The masque has come to town.

If it's the 16th century in the court of Queen Elizabeth, or the 21st century with social media, its still a freak show.
