  2. please how can I join the union
    I’m a poet and here is my poem

    IF POLITICS BE THEATRE

    Theatre in round,arena,

    Thrust or proscenium all have

    Actors and audience.

    If politics be theatre…

    Government be lead actor

    Citizens be audience,

    Identifying with the actor’s character

    Feeling their pains and thinking as they.

    If politics be theatre…

    Epic theatre we ought to have

    Or is it? Actors picked from the audience

    Well, actors are fakely chosen from the audience

    Actor-activist turns spokesman of antagonist

    Reps forget their sender and sends themselves.

    If politics be theatre…

    Lead actor becoming dynamic after a short while

    Of campaigning manifestos

    Dropping actor character for actor self

    Improvisation of bad acts and display

    If politics be theatre…

    Transformational acting,where a actor

    Assume several offices

    An actor of ccommissioners,

    SA’s . Making other actors roleless

    If politics be theatre…

    The director assuming acting roles

    Also giving himself blockings, needing

    No rehearsals to be perfect

    Inborn unchangeable talent of selfishness

    Playing games on the audience emotion

    If politics be theatre…

    Is the play comic or tragic?

    Well……

    From the audience perspective a tragedy

    From the actor’s side a comedy

    If politics be theatre…

    Perhaps lightings impede them

    Viewing the audience facial expressions

    But what of those acting on

    The apron?are they not closer to the audience?

    If politics be theatre…

    The play the audience pay to watch

    Make them sad instead of relieved

    Like someone buying a coffin

    Running to act on foreign stages

    Why not make yours home-foreign

    And make it centre of attention

    Hmmmmm,if politics be theatre…

    My question now is-

    If you, given a role

    How will you deal with the audience?

    Will you act well or fairly?

    Remember Owen’s “Animal Farm”

    Will you get carried away?

    Will you make the audience smile or yourself?

    Just think it,if politics be theatre…
