Countdown To The BreakDown

Climb the pedestal,
Oh so high!
1, 2, 3!
Lights, camera, action!

What?! Broken already?!
But the show must go on!
4, 5, 6!
Well go on! Play this part with a broken heart.

7, 8, 9!
No time to take off the mask yet.
Go on! Recite the lines!
Stand high with your broken pride!

10, 12, 15! You lost the count and you lost your soul!
So just go on!
Play along.
Recite the lines to your rehearsed role.

Oh, the fall!
The fall from grace.
Pull the trigger-
Save face!

Beauty in the breakdown,
Fashion magazines.
Cigarettes and cocktails and cocaine!
Oh darling!
You’re spiraling down the staircase to fame!

Shattered dreams,
Forgotten trophies.
Framed glossy covers-
An ode to callous beauty!

Six feet under,
Cold, still and desolate.
Forgotten, really
Flames to dust.

Climb the pedestal,
Oh so high!
3, 2, 1!
Embrace the fall.
