He went out into the world
And made his mark,
His name becoming a target
For envy.
And now he has gone back to the beginning:
His people.
They greet him with the same irreverent:
"Hello, Johny!"
And he is chagrined,
For all his importance
He has not acquired sufficient humor
To save him from the spectacle
Of the old actor
Who still would strut
Though the play be ended . . .
