Playing my Part

On a scented stage
In sandal wood garb
A play was practised
With players in style
For a swaying mob;
I played my part.

Steps slipped
Music spilled
Voices yelled
Out of rhythm
Out of tune
Out of time.

Quietly, I withdrew
Watched the play
Hastily improvised
With a somebody
Playing my part
In perfect ease.
