    Where's The Orchestra?

    Where's the orchestra?
    Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
    Here I am in the balcony
    How the hell could I have missed the overture?
    I like the scenery
    Even though I have absolutely no
    Idea at all
    What is being said
    Despite the dialogue
    There's the leading man
    The movie star who never faced an audience

    Where's the orchestra?
    After all
    This is my big night on the town
    My introduction to the theatre crowd
    I assumed that the show would have a song
    So I was wrong
    At least I understand
    All the innuendo and the irony
    And I appreciate
    The roles the actors played
    The point the author made
    And after the closing lines
    And after the curtain calls
    The curtain falls
    On empty chairs
    Where's the orchestra?
