Masquerade

So many names Many more faces When we gather together In all different place Gowns of all colors Suits and ties Behind various masks We all hide In splendor and fun We make new acquaintance Not minding we've traveled A lengthy distance We greet with smiles And shakes of the hand But a pleasant face Is easy to misunderstand Customs and manners Can be refined But secrets of thought Are hidden in the mind So look a little deeper At every adornment arrayed Veracity of character is hidden Behind the display Past the face we portray At the Masquerade
