Alias Arthur

You say your name is Arthur,
is that really true.
I have heard lots of stories
so can this really be you.
To be a good alias
you have to have a good name
because people will dig deep,
until they find that you,
fit the so called frame.
An alias is a person,
who does well in disguise.
A person who also,
tells many lies.
A secret person,
with tricks up there sleeve
one that can mimic
and know how to thieve.
To the right person,
it's just playing silly games
one that owns a pandora's box
full of disguise's and names.
So if you are all
these my friend.
Then Arthur your an alias
right to the very end.

Hi, Sylvia: Don't we all at one time or another wish we had an alias, could be someone else, or just disappear altogether? ? However, not all of could hide so successfully. Scarlett
