Life on Film
What was happening, well that could be me,
my life being played out on the big screen
with me in the lead role,
my family, those actors and actresses
with lines on cue, the accusations, the
pull yourself together,
the agony of desertion done in one take
and days roll quickly through the camera lens,
scenes race to a conclusion
in just two hours ten minutes.
Ah! but the DVD has the Directors cut,
those extra bits to revel in;
but I cannot edit out the bits I don’t like
I’ve tried but they return to haunt me,
constantly on repeat.
