Artifice to Edifice

Oh how we value artifice; Indeed we'll bow and 'scrape' Upon a stage of the falsest rage We hang; on every word and break The props are real to viewers the plots we know by heart They’re lionized and idolised most people of these arts We imbue them with much value Though some are not so good.' There seems an understanding That the softer life is best Though of those that there 'labour' seem limp wristed in the main However this easy life it seems Was the choice of harder brains. ©Joe Maverick 25-2-2018

Thanks for the coment Harry I guess you can look at this many ways, I am trying to cover a lot of ground in this, the thing that amazes me is how many people like falshood' have you seen the phone mast plastic trees? No doubt the builder of them thinks them great, its like everything that is 'created' or existing we make very poor copys of whatever and man is over the moon about it.'
