A second take on "stage" for Day 28. Based on Shakespeare's line from As You Like It.

The World's a Stage

by Profe Steve

All the world’s a stage, they say,

All the world’s a stage, they say, And we are merely actors,

All the world’s a stage, they say, And we are merely actors, Searching for the words to say

All the world’s a stage, they say, And we are merely actors, Searching for the words to say And hiding from detractors.

With each new line we show our fires,

With each new line we show our fires, Our character's intentions,

With each new line we show our fires, Our character’s intentions, To show or hide our heart’s desires

With each new line we show our fires, Our character’s intentions, To show or hide our heart’s desires And daily contraventions.

We don our costumes dark or light,

We don our costumes dark or light, Paint makeup on our faces,

We don our costumes dark or light, Paint makeup on our faces, Attempting to disguise our plight,

We don our costumes dark or light, Paint makeup on our faces, Attempting to disguise our plight, Obscuring sorrow’s traces.

All we do is thus an act,

All we do is thus an act, To be witnessed from afar,

All we do is thus an act, To be witnessed from afar, Don’t let them see the mask is cracked

All we do is thus an act, To be witnessed from afar, Don’t let them see the mask is cracked Or who we really are.
