Welcome to the theatre of the mind
come inside you may be
surprised by what you find.
Performances of sheer jubilation
followed by acts of sad frustration.
The show is whatever you choose
but be careful for the majority may confuse.
You will search for a happy ending
even then you could be pretending.
Lights go down and you’re left in the gloom,
prepare yourself for you don’t know
whether tonight is joy or doom.
