to defend our character in this world.
who knows who's winning?
who knows who's watching?
who knows if anyone's keeping score?
the audience are long gone,
seats left empty for seventeen years.
what you had to offer,
it was just so passé, so outdated, so seen before.
it's so screamingly obvious to everyone but you:
your character has been thoroughly assassinated.
you'll be shown out,
please don't make a scene.
