The Play

from by Jeff Johnson




The Devil enters the prompter's box and the play is ready to start.
– From The Harpy, Robert Williams Service

Long ago I met you in the Play,
In the Play we knew just what to say,
We were told when to move, "Try to make it real smooth."
It was all that we could handle way back then.

But the Curtain never fell down on the Play,
And the Characters we acted out remain,
Though the Show's a success, there are some who want out,
The Director handles it in his own way,
And we never see them much more in the Play. . .

You were one of them.
Share the secret word.
Get me out of here. . .
