Acting.

This is not an act.
There is no contract.
The truth will attract
What is contrary to fact.
So don't go on with the act
Yet. To act is not exact
It is an abstract
That holds us intact
In fact, it is only an extract
Of what we have, a pact
To have what is lacked.
Now that we have that backed
Let's go on with the next act!

Well this little baby flowed to the end with an exact rhyming theme, I'm not exactly sure how I feel about that, however I like the abstract feel of this piece. Very good, --Melvina--
I commented on this on facebook already, but I like this one. I don't know that I'm skillful enough to have the last word sound the same throughout the whole poem. Great job!
