Here’s to that thing with the money
that speaks words dripping with honey,
that promises and promises
and brings us all smiles,
that knew, in the end,
that we’d all just be sitting in the aisles,
wondering what could have been.

Here’s to the people who labored
away for weeks to get a taste of that flavor
of the stage, who believed in a joke
about a play that poked
fun at silly actors and fools,
people who have hearts and souls
and wear them on their sleeves every day and night.
