She insists her eyes
are irrefutable;
And I eager to comply
say I’m fooled.
Play oblivious to embarrassment
Don pointed cap and twinkle toes,
Assume a character void of schemes
Play whatever seems
against sense.

Physicians may chortle diagnoses
Psychiatrists trace
My subterranean pedigree;
Say I’m mad
Solicit sympathies;
Still miss the intricacies
That complicate to free.
