Without Believable Depth Connected

Those who perform,
And as 'artists' to do it...
Seek messages that are meaningful.
To then deliver effectively at thrie best.
And not under spotlight to emote an ego,
With an attention to get.

But with no message to leave remembered,
Like many who 'act' often do.
Without believable depth connected.
OR an audience left impressed and affected,
By a message that 'should' stay in their minds.
Those who 'act' and are not 'artists'...
Sleepwalk through their lines everytime.

'I thought they were tremendous.'

~At what point?
When they got up from falling off the stage?
Or when they climbed back on it to walk off? ~

'I'm sure that was scripted.
Or they would not have stayed in character.'

~I liked the way the stage manager ran to their assistance.~

So when he called them idiots,
That wasn't written into the script? '

~You know nothing about theater.
Do you? ~

Isn't it all about drama? '

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
