The Masquerade

The Masquerade©


He thought it was just a game well played

Sitting here in the grass and shade


He never wanted to hurt anyone

Didn’t she know he was the kind who would run


They held hands and he saw her swoon

This was the maid normally holding a broom


He told tales of wealth and stature

As though it was rapture


In this tale of lore

He was the hero for sure


A man with oh so many talents

An estate no less on balance


He was the pride of the British side

A lie he well knew deep inside


A gentleman due for a great inheritance

Gathered here for her pretence


His tongue spoke of proper education

Not the poverty of his preoccupation


Of course he was a great success in business

For a man for a who was utterly clueless


Oh so many lies

Just so he could lie beside her looking into her eyes


It wasn’t as though they would be wed

This was just a ploy to see her to his bed
