Puppet strings, they dance above                                                                         

Suffocating, like a strangled dove.                                                                          

Brooding, planning, machinating,                                                                                 

Controlling, studying, and calculating.

Actions, nay of our own accord,

Movement by invisible cable and cord.

A show, a performance, a spectacular scene,

Abnormal, odd, just like a dream.

Props and masks, a light, a glow,

For life is just one sinister show.
