168 – Why pretend?

pretendYou pretend to be what you are not
You feign reality

You role play life
That you invent

You wear a pretentious front
You attempt to deceive
A false showing
With false reasoning
While in your heart you believe

You play a make-believe lying game
With never a hint of shame
That we also play along
So why should we assign any blame
When we ourselves pretend there’s nothing wrong
“God has given you one face,
And you make yourself another.”

William Shakespeare
