The world is but a stage,

Acting is our task.

I'm sure that's great and fine.

What if....without a mask?

 

If true sages shone in wisdom

And false ones fell away.

Cruel ambitions won't mislead,

To false gods, none would pray.

 

But would it be so nice

If nothing were concealed?

The theatre has no magic

If secrets were revealed.
