“ People ” ~ who parade ~

 

I see people

Who parade,

Watched by they

Whose charade

Fool no other,

Yet they vary

Their façade,

Trying hard

To disregard,

They be barb

For one another…

 

Might be better

To look deeper

At their proper,

Thus find reason

Be themselves,

Not like others

Who so chose

Masquerade,

Which alas

Will not alter

They’re but clad

Would be people!

    • Nice to read your flattering comment, that suggests my poem brings to mind an Oscar Wilde quote. How very nice, and doubly so that Mr. Wilde ranks highly among my favourites authors and poets. Thank you ever so much. Jean-Jacques Fournier
