Roles They Play To Rehearse - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is easy for anyone,
Not sitting in a hot seat...
To accuse someone for not doing something,
Believed that should be done overnight.
Or someone else could do it better immediately.

Especially if that one has received accolades,
To assume qualifies them with beliefs...
That certain roles they play to rehearse,
And re-enact to fantasize...
Turns their delusions into realities.

'Be careful on the scene.
They are actually using live ammo.
Nothing used are 'props'.
If you should get shot,
You will drop...for real! '
