With Little, If Any, Scrutinizing Feedback

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

The difference between 'good'...
And accepted mediocrity.
As observed and done with much ease.
Is a wish to break barriers of a commonness.
If it is acknowledged and then addressed.

There is nothing like being directed to be on top of things,
To avoid last minute necessities needed to produce success.
Or at least, the anticipation of it!
And doing that with hard work to manifest,
That which is considered the basics of success.

If something has been declared,
Prepared and ready for public viewing...
And a seriousness is attached!
And all cast members,
Are made to be aware of that fact!
All traps are then sealed

To appease those who may or may not clap,
Enthusiastically when that curtain closes.
And the lights are dimmed,
With little, if any, scrutinizing feedback!
Or a demand for entrance fees returned.
A preparation beyond rehearsals...
Is a requirement for that!

To make sure no one feels they've been burned.
Or singed by a lack of professionalism shown!
Since paying for that may be a concern!

'OH...
You seem to be familiar with theater.
And the quality needed,
To mount a successful production? '

Yes, I am.
That's why I avoid doing any of it here!
And one of the reasons why I am not asked.
Since what I do is not recognized.
Or considered acceptable to those,
Not up for the task!
