The Entertainer

We break our bones to entertain you.
We smile through tears.
Cake our faces.
Pile on the mascara.
The wigs.
That heels.
The lines on our faces erased.
The lines from out lips sputtered like rain on the stage,
Where guts and glory are spilled.
Lap it up!
All the great defeats!
The applause!
The critics that kill with the pen!
Groupies that melt on pan.
Oh we break it.
Break the leg.
Break hearts.
For the applause.
For our redemption.
Just for show.
To entertain you.
