Pantomime Jacks ©

Alisdaire O'Caoimph
Lavergne, USA

See the World role it's play
O' Pantomime Jacks and Lillie's gay
In visions crafted before the eyes
of simpleton dreams and fancy sighs
Gathers all of all that they behold
Obnoxious, Indignant, brash and bold
Foolish antics not worthy of praise
in a turmoil world and material Haze
Watch them run to play their games
Gladiator Jocks and Lady Jane dames
neither caring the worth or wrought
of what is missing, of what they've caught
Saddened faces worn inside out
in throw away sins therein about
Nothing valued, nothing sacred to hold
Mere personalities, all bought, all sold.
