A heavily trimmed rewrite of an early piece.
‘Come take your seat, when you are in, we will begin!
Hurry now honoured guest, we wait not for the rest,
this show is for you alone.
This spectacle seen by few, is reward long overdue.
On the bill of fare, are the times you wouldn’t dare.
We have chances missed and love never kissed,
roads you didn’t take, decisions you didn’t make.
Words you could’ve said, those spoken instead,
the doors you left shut, and cloth you never cut.
For you we’ve spared no expense,
so now let the show commence!
But by curtain fall, you must peace achieve,
or be trapped in the show and never leave.’
