All For Show

Parading within the spotlight
You never could resist
Putting on a good show
For an eager crowd of strangers

Those of us who know
Can smell the stink of dung
Clinging to your every word

  1. Lol.... no beating about the bush here.. you get right to the point. I don't like people who spread nothing but poop like that either.
    Nicely said :)

  2. Ha, Dana! I know people like this too. However, little do they know most of the time that their 'make-up' is very transparent!

    1. Yes Mary... EXACTLY! I love your comment! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. oh snap...nice turn in this....yeah i know a few that will play to the crowd, but those that really know aint pretty...

  4. Hi Dana! So true--the stench reveals itself sooner or later, great choices of words and excellent take on the prompt :-)

  5. I guess there's people like this everywhere! Best to stand back to avoid the stench!

  6. Oh gee ... I spent a few years trying to maintain a relationship with someone just like this! Good thing I ended it, it was exhausting just watching him. Great poetry!!!

  7. Good depiction of a type of person many of us have known--and seen through!

  8. great take on the prompt!!!

    thanks for participating at Poetry Jam!
