Day 6 of Blogging from A to Z. Today’s letter is F
F is for Facile Feigned Façade
facile tears feign need
façade to suit a motive
once seen we pity
Facile tears and feigned need come easily to some - the façade of neediness the only way they garner friends.
In the beginning, the audience is large as they follow along from drama to drama. They watch and participate vicariously as each living play unfolds. But the theme and plot begin to repeat again and again.
The steady stream of repetition eventually wears thin; the motives of the face behind the façade become more and more clear.
Slowly the followers’ caring turns to pity; the parade of followers thins then falls away.
