Buy a Mask With Care

Written by: Lou Schreiberg

The Super Mask Store is open 
Through turning door of anonymity
For those who wish a fathom's wade
To best the tide in a human sea

Through each aisle the old masks fly
To find the new in the unknown
Some with grimace, some with smiles
'Buy my mask for none on loan'

Always best to check the fit
To meet the ego for which one strives
Strange, it is, to buy new dreams
With begging masks that changes lives

Before you buy, look outside
Many walk with heads not twirled
Your old mask may yet be best
A knowing stranger in a welcome world
