Autobiography Of A Playwright

I was once an actor,
But the lawyer came.
I was a fighter, too,
But the referee came.

They chased me throughout the forest.
They kidnapped me from the wilderness.
I was stripped to skin.
I faced death.

Now I am fenced
within the prison of helotry.
Now I cluster with the billions ---
Fenced within the prison of helotry.
