Looking at the mirror isn't easy
after so many years.
Still, it's a good way to realize
our bodies were not made in Hollywood
and many scripts are pre-written –
there'zzzzz no need ta fear.
The heroes in our tiny dramas
were decided long before any cast.
Their archetypes will endure after
all cuurent characters pass.
Real heroes are undying –
though each body disappears.
Whad happens on stage
is simple entertainment
tah keep us in arrears.

Lex: God help those who take their fictions seriously.

Lis: We are at our best when we admit our own inherent foolishness.
