Contrivance

I have a superb script all ready!

Would you like to see it?

I just need the perfect cast and crew

and I know the execution will be 

magnificent.

 

Flash-forward…

fluttering leaves of white lined with black ink

fall to the ground in one messy heap

no-one showed up to watch

the audience that did show up

were the three voices all too familiar

to the script-writer

the three applaud resoundingly

mockingly

and as the script-writer tries to shake

the mocking applause from her head

her made-up crown falls to the ground.

Glitter and sequins line the dusty tiles

and as she looks down in horror

they are joined by droplets of tears that

soon become a torrential rain.
