Charade

charade

Had to be a compromise,
harbouring unconciliated
views means the scenery
is less plausibly hilarious
than one man’s mirthful
sense of reality – yet the
comedy comes easily, a
farce-shamming charade

But if it’s me seeing this
tragedy then it’s wasted;
choral laughter on stage
echoes sadly to one tone
of one voice or one hand
however clapping madly
