Performing Arts

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Anyone believing,
A sustained career in the performing arts is easy...
Hasn't done it.
Or could if they tried.

There is quite a difference between being entertained,
And entertaining.
It's very similar to the art of writing.
And there is an 'art' to it.

There has to be a love connection.
An emotional committment.
A joy that is heartfelt.
And a devotion that is inseparable.

If those factors aren't there...
Becoming a critic is less involving.
Less challenging.
And requires far less talent!

Being able to use one's body and mind,
Is a gift.
Especially if one has to tolerate...
The creativity expressed coming from critic's lips.

Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
