The puppets are drowning now 

their useful time has passed.

They were always made 

to become shadows

to be discarded 

by the string pullers

when the audience was sated.

The glove puppets and sock puppets

are floating away 


tumbling like clowns

in the waves

and soon

even the shadow puppets will vanish

maybe then 

the puppeteers will reveal themselves

put their power on display 


For soon it will be time

for them to change 

their shape 

and re-emerge

to find new clowns,

new clowns to seduce the audience.
