Masquerade

My hope is that this falling rain will
Wash away the masquerade,
Saturate the masks and costume jewelry
Til they soften and disintegrate.

The play’s gone on for long enough,
And though the set is beatiful,
The weather’s just too much to bear,
Too cold a wind is blowing through
To keep these paper trees and plastic
Bricks from giving up and crumbling.

It’s just no longer entertaining,
Writing all these scripts.

It’s just no longer plausible,
This complicated plot we’ve written,
And to wait for the denouement
In such inclement conditions is
Too much to ask of actors
Who no longer seem to care.
