We're all actors in the HP play
on and off our poetry stage
writing lines to fulfil the day
plenty placate while others rage

Making a point through rhyme and prose
to varying audience replies
scriptwriters delivering body blows
thespians striking between the eyes

Exchanging sentiments of respect
interchanging from reader to writer
a past love many keen to resurrect
or for the bitten to be the biter

Dull day jobs or working from home
paying mortgages, rents and bills
then back to our poetic platform
a cathartic aim to cure all ills
Blowing air kisses to you all my dahlings
