Riddle me this my Dears

Tell me a little

about where we began

did we start

as we now are

and what part did we choose

what is our part


looking at us

shall we know the tale

when we type

we are sexless

unless we tell


can they tell

does it matter if its true

my name is my own

but nondescript to view.


it doesn't tell

so why should I

shall we put a label on the I

I am having fun


but its not fair

nor meat for the public

as I enjoy my fare


if you read as I read

a giggle or two

a play for the audiance

that means you


So bow I all to you all

or curtsy shall I

is either a truth

shall both be a lie


Our choices compounded

tell what is true

but we cant remember them

so what is there to do


when life is complicated

this shouldn't be

but pain and tortured minds

rob it of simplicity.


so you see

perhaps you don't

What we are

being what we chose and choose

but to each choice a law

the law breakers will loose


just choosing again

doesn't change a thing

only your part in this play

and a new beginning.
