Profound flashbacks of yesterday

A pompous parade has lost its way

Sheeple in a game of charades

Original ideas often mislaid

Costume masks obscure selfie faces

Perception blurs snapshot places

Festive moments of who’s portrayed

Whilst enjoying their marmalade

A copy/paste as someone else

No face to face with oneself

Those that opt to masquerade

Their alter egos a societal display

Tuesdays are Meet and Greet at the café

    Eugenia,

    Interesting use of an application function “copy/paste” entwined in your poem to illustrate the masquerade of another. I used last week’s word prompt in today’s post. I hope you’ll decide to drop by. Thanks for hosting! 😉
