Pretty little fool

Do not fret,
You are but a lost puppet,
The show must go on,
Bright smile, where are you?
 
A slight kick,
Silent giggle
Cheerful little trickster, you
Where is your mouth?
 
Are you not, lost?
As you say, puppet
Are you laughing at my foolishness,
For 'twas not I who played the fool
But you.
 
Oh, please little puppet,
Reveal to me who you are
Under this façade
Are you but the ventriloquist?
 
A one man show?
No, don’t disclose to me
The secrets of your show, puppet
 
I will show you lost.
