The Actor - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

The actor is one who can present him, or herself in front of an audience, and does not lose their cool.
An actor can look truthful, and honest, but in reality be a good for nothing sneak.
If you can not be that person, just smile and give a wink.
Oh what a wonderful profession, pretending all the time,
But let not it take possession of your heart, and of your mind.
