Gone to the Wind


Once more.

With wide eyes,

Throw back your head

And give your best impression

Of a recently widowed soldier's wife

Who can't see the end to hearbreak.

Give me a performance worthy of an Oscar.

I won't ask whether you've ever been in love;

Won't pry, in exchange for your cooperation and good behaviour.

What's it to me if you've found your one significant other?

Hell, it takes little experience to pull the wool over these eyes.

Audiences these days only want the best special effects their money can buy.

Fake a few tears, and then we'll film the love scene with Lover #2.


Romance has gone out the window; I can't find any anymore.

The End
