WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Droll

Rumor has it that you’re on the king’s dole

In a masked performance you live to your roll

The people wouldn’t guess that you’re so droll

Playing happy in a sad sack sense of carnival

Backstage whispers tell you just what to say

You tell me it’s a kick but that’s just the way

You have your role to play and you play it

They tell you things you’d never say but you say it

It’s how you’ll keep yourself on society’s top

Above and below the sheets – so you won’t stop

It’s the price you pay willingly for your celebrity

Giving your all so that one day you’ll go out legendary

Too young, you’ll be much too young when you die

That’s the meme that those around you will one day cry
