satire, of course

 

misrepresenting me,
i earn a thousand parodies.
teasing & bantering a crowd of
actors, twisting a spectacle of second-rate.

it’s not easy how
i camouflage the grief to relief.
there are me and my bad days,
when mornings are assaulted by demons.

bending the rules, making complications.
something is there to repair.
this character i portray,
the script is alive like a non-fiction.
