Dress Rehearsal

This was just a dress rehearsal

A chance to get it right before the big show

My hair done the way you like it

A pretty bow painted on my lips

You take your place front and center

Expecting nominations

For a mediocre performance

But you forgot the lines you so carefully rehearsed

Breaking the mold of the character you were supposed to play

Taking a bow before the curtains go down

Awaiting a standing ovation
