Playing Human

the smile on my lips

is forced and coerced

I pretend to pay attention

give the best possible advice

everyone praises me

I 'm so kind, polite and nice

its all just automation

I rarely actually listen

certainly don't care

all I'm doing

is playing human

blending in

fitting in

I'm so perfectly hidden

you 'll never even

see a curtain  

from where I stand  

majoring in fronts 

put up on a pedal stool

for computing with fools

I'm so perfectly hidden 

smiling from time to time

labeling those 

with  all sincerity

open solitary

passing along an appeal

continuing to fit in

blend in


force  program 

is it just me or

am I the perfect human

for p.d's collaboration contest but I wont say who wrote what part.

    A real good one on artifice, and how we see ourselves, and I guess how we could miss the genuine veins running through to our character's Nathan..' Pleased to have stopped by..'

    Top marks for the honesty with which these lines have been written. Sometimes it can be the other way round...the good and quiet pretending to be macho, imitating others. Of course we do put on a smiley mask at times to cover up the pain or sadness that we feel inside. ~ Congrats on your first place win, Nathan! All the best. // paul

    this is really awesome. It reminds me of a sociopath that everyone trusts and thinks is so human, kind of like Ted Bundy (or maybe some Soupers I know . hahaha) Great job, the two of you.

    Played this part for a few years. I think I know who wrote what after knowing how you write but I may be wrong. I think this one flowed the best so far in the ones I have seen so far.

    I'm only human at night. LOL I like it, I like it A LOT! Don't worry I already called. I know exactly who wrote what part. The ending makes it all happen, what I really mean is, eek eek eek eek eek eek eek eek eek eek eek. Where you at? Me Monkey not Human
