Beat the drums! Let the trumpets blast!
Actors ramble across the world’s stage,
What an ensemble! What a cast!
We are standing on the precipice of a new age,
History in the making as we turn another page.
I stepped up and paid my fee,
Hoping the play would seem real.
I got more than I bargained for,
And yet I’m getting a raw deal!
In so many languages our secrets were globally shared.
Step right up and get the latest news,
The drama, the lies, the action…
As if anyone really cared.
I think I’ll turn the TV back on,
The world news is ready to begin.
But no, I hesitate, it seems like the same news again.
As for the truth, he’s doing what? To who? Why? And when?
While others stand and shake their heads,
Don’t they know lying is a sin?
I’ll be sad when the play is over,
The fireworks will light up the sky.
But if those aren’t real fireworks,
There will be no time to sit and cry.
