People who like to dress up
Have no name
Or none that I know.
You’ll say smartly,
“They are called actors,
That’s a totally different category.
I mean in everyday life
They contrive a way to dress a role
Fully but carefully, as not to
Be on the brink of scorn.
They dream of living in gnomish castles
Or firehouse with shines brass poles
Or best of all ships
Bedecked with banquet tables
Lost at sea never to return again.
