“G” is for General Audiences

Don’t lead with your bleeding insides.

It’s not what the world expects—

Don’t drip on their high

lest you be “that guy”,

camouflage your defects.


Quash your anxiety firmly.

Who cares if it shifts and gnaws?

Present a good face,

manage with grace,

candy-coat obvious flaws.


Convey your best pasteurized wishes,

to those you encounter each day,

inquire after—

their life with some laughter–

(The laughter will show you’re ok.)


If such artifice becomes tiresome,

& you feel the mask slipping, please note—

If you lay yourself bare

no one will care,

even worse only few swing the vote.


To recap this advice in a nutshell,

& pin-point the best path to choose,

smiling through pain,

is the only way plain,

To insure they don’t turn off the news.
