    “This definitely bigger than the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band but do we have any music to go along with it?”

    I’m not certain what I’m looking at – it looks like a bunch of clowns under a circus tent.

    People! People! Please take your seats! The theater can not start until you all get off of the stage and take your seats.

    On the 40th anniversary of “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway, everyone who had ever been in the production reunited to perform “Masquerade.”

    I arrived for the Fancy Dress Ball / in the most clever costume of all. / Not a one could compare / with what I chose to wear. / (You’d agree if I weren’t so small.) /// When we posed, on that magical night, / for the painter, I sought the best light. / I am bathed in it’s glow / in the 33rd row. / I’m the 98th one from the right.

    When it came to "reading a room/ Perigal was a humaan “Zoom”/ not a soul was aggrieved/ at the likeness achieved/ and some even still visit his tomb. /// He complied with a royal directive/ and he toiled at the proper perspective/ He depicted the horde/-both shareholders and board/ though not without Scottish invective.

    From a painterly point of view/ Mankind is merely a zoo/ from the artist’s perspective/ we all are defective/..though he may favor one or two..

    Where is there a parking lot that can hide that many horses and carriages? The street was so full he almost didn’t get there.

    Unfortunately, Jerome decided this was the time to test out whether or not it was legal to yell, “FIRE” in a crowded ballroom.

    Pandemic protocols for social distancing had devastated Arthur Perigal the Elder’s plan to paint “ A Fancy Dress Ball.” Then someone suggested the perfect solution — 400 life-size cardboard cutouts.
