Strike the Set

The show is over
we played our parts,
offered up our soliloquies
full of passion and despair.
We had a good run,
though shorter
than I had hoped.

Towards the end
performances had become
tired, uninspired.
No calls for encore,
no standing ovation;
we simply shuffle off
exit, stage left.


  1. Ah ... the play's the thing. No matter how long the run.

  2. And the show must go on... thanks for reading Helen.
