Tragedy makes the entertainer|
O yes on stage a funny man you see
Inside he hides what he is going through.
His life disaster, one long tragedy.
He hides it well on stage. It's what he do.
One tragedy too many and too far.
The show is over. Final curtain call.
He then must leave adieu to one and all.
There goes the once great shining superstar.
He had to leave, somehow become matured.
For that could not go go on so endlessly.
To think so is the fools thought. Do you see?
He had to be to himself reassured.
The past be over. He is forgiven.
And found the will to live and keep living.
