It Simply Isn't Normal

No, it simply isn’t normal (except via stage and screen), to be who you aren’t,
And this why when it comes to pretending to be someone else, some of us can’t.
Role-playing being so foreign, that saying and acting out what isn’t us,
Which is a form of deceit, it not genuine nor true, thus not the right bus.

No, it taking us where we’re not happy to go, somewhere that’s fake and grimy,
One acting out the vices and errings of others, a horrid world to me.
This world bad enough as it is without regurgitating its sins and woes,
And there being far better things to do with ones life, and why out acting goes.
