THE DIRECTOR

An imposing figure

White with a flowing beard

Black with a fierce glare

A dancing flame

Depending on your point of view

Shouting out orders

“places every one”

“lights”“action”

And when the infant swims into view

On a river of blood

“cut”

Another soul struggles free

Of the liquid limbo

Exchanging water for air

Cries his first cry of many

Film rolls, stages are set

Life lived without a double

Doing our own dangerous stunt

Action,romance,drama

Until the Director decides on

An ending that will bring tears

To his audience yells

“Fade to black”
