The Actress


The actress grabbed her stomach
And ran to her dressing room.
They all gathered around to look at her.
"What could be wrong?" they whispered.
The actress bent and gasped.
"She's faking" one said.
The actress writhed.
"She looks ridiculous" said another.
The actress moaned.
"She needs to go to the bathroom"
Someone chuckled.

The actress openly sobbed.
They wondered at each other.
"I think she's sick" someone dared.
The actress looked as if she were pleading.
They decided to leave her alone.
She whispered something
As the door closed behind them
That nobody heard...
"Is there a doctor in the house?"
