Congrats, You Can Act And That's A Fact!

So many out there think they can't act. They think it takes all kinds of tact. That or some sleezeball plastic face. But that isn't the true embrace. For you acted away at some point in the last day.

You meet a friend.
A friend to the end.
To the end of this meeting.
But you fake the greeting.

They buy it.
Every little bit.
You walk away,
You may even pray.

Pray they never comeback.
Such prayers may lack.
But you faked it like a pro.
You acted, what do you know.

You pretend to like work.
Put on a smile for even a jerk.
Whether customer or boss,
Either can be a coin toss.

You nod and agree,
When you just want to flee.
They walk away with a smile.
Add another whatever to the file.

You acted and stayed.
You also got paid.
No drama or prissy crap,
Like some plastic faced chap.

You fake interest.
You give it your best.
You really don't care,
But they are never aware.

They sit and yap.
Away they flap.
You humor for a while.
But it isn't your style.

But they are nice,
So you pay the price.
You sigh when they go.
End of today's show.

No need for lines,
Or fancy type wines.
You acted with ease.
Wasn't that a breeze?

Did you know you could act? The cat made it a fact. Now you know you can do it. Go out and make a Hollywood hit. Hmm not sure faking it at work would sell. But you never know, could be swell. Then again you may want to avoid the Hollywood cesspool. Try some other tool. Now go back to acting like the normal class. Or just stay acting crazy like my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    1. Life is a stage
      each day a new act
      you can write your own page
      or dance to a new soundtrack
      supporting actors/actresses can be found
      all you need do is take a look around
      some often try to take center stage it’s true
      It’s all about them, never about you
      I am just trying to get through the day
      will a tellprompter tell us what to say.. haha

      Ok, I vote for the rhyming cat
      who wears a one of a kind hat..

      And the Oscar goes to
      envelope please....

      Fake gold too
      A win through and through
      With the other nuts about
      A fake little pout
      Acting like you won
      And deserve what was done
      then comes the knife
      Such is life
      Fake and go
      Heigh ho, heigh ho
