You’ve finally made it, you have your name in lights
The marquee flashes your name in bright white light
that bathes the passersby.
Your own private dressing room, a star on your door
You have waited all your life for this moment
You open the door and gaze at all the flowers
your fans have sent to you, their hero.
You have everything to yourself
everything from the makeup case
to the chair with your name on the back.
You take down your costume
It is fresh and clean and especially made for you.
You don it and stand by the mirror
to admire the way it accentuates your better features.
You put on your makeup
Not too much
Just enough to accent your features
You apply the finishing touches and now you are ready
You wait for your curtain call
but it will never come
Your show has been canceled!
Break a leg kiddo!
