Make Up

we make up our faces

for lots of reasons

to go to the movies

or some junior prom

to see ice hockey

or watch the Dodgers come home again


going to the grocery store

only requires lipstick

while a bridge game

can mean a quick trip

to the hairdresser for a touch up

i clean my make up

before going to bed


and if my mood is foul

i spray the sheets

with Ultra Ban

most faces are made up

before the public is faced

whether male female or child

it’s always so appropriate

don’tcha know

to put a little mascara

around the eyes

we make up fantasies

to face life

we need to believe

we are good on the job

or at least in the bed

we make up lies

to impress people

who are making up lies

to impress us

and if either took all

the make up off

life would not be

worth living

We make up excuses

to say i’m sorry that

forgive me because

and after all didn’t i tell you


and i make up with you

because you aren’t strong

enough to reach out

to say

come home i need you
