Prompt for January 5: The Entertainer


[Prompt from .]

To make laughter bubble,
Tears rain, fear shake,
And anger tense,
To instill these feelings
Within the bowels of curious
Onlookers is a true talent,
Indeed. But to wear the mask
Of ambiguity, to become a separate entity
From one’s own emotions,
Caging the quelling forces within
In favor of sights more appealing
To the biased observer,
Is a gift to rival the
Lapis philosophorum
In this, our time of deception and trickery.
