Watch With Ambivalence

December 10, 2020

We watch murder
Every day
“Real” or portrayed
Like it’s no big thing
In disconnected ways
We participate by
Not lifting a finger
To prevent such deaths
Whether it be
Blood for oil or
Ignoring starving millions
But then again …….how
Responsible can we be
After all
It is just a script
A storyline
Performed by actors
In a role
Playing a part that has
Been chosen to play
Whether they
Wanted to or not
Either as an extra or
The main character
In the never ending
Movie within
“The BIG picture”
For there will always be
Infinite chances
For many new auditions
In bit parts or recurring roles
To play heroes or villians
Extras or starring parts
Knowing you can
Alter the script anytime
You want to because
That is how it works
On the “World” stage
Until the “final” curtain call

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”
– Angelo Devlin
“All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage”

– Rush
