#APRPAD – Day 6

The internet is down at my house today, so I am attempting to do all of this via mobile. I’m having trouble getting links copied/working, so for now, you just get the poem – no prompt or previous days. Check back for an update…

After the Show

The applause rings out
And the curtain falls
There’s hustle and madness backstage.
An actor emerges,
Friends and family shout
And autographs are scrawled on a page.
There are flowers and hugs,
And plans to retreat
To a local watering hole.
To recount favorite scenes
And talk highs and lows
Of playing a difficult role.
This is all part of the show
The aftermath, and the afterglow.
