The Act of Life:

People everywhere all wear a mask

As they act in the theatre called life

Trying their best to survive in their task

With Minimal hurt and strife.


The time is right and the stage is set

As the actors all take their place.

Lines are spoken that most will forget

Whilst others ramble on at an incoherent pace.


And so the play proceeds

As the act carries on

While nobody sees

That another actor is gone…


Such is the theatre of life…
