Showcase by Justin Smith Hoopes
We all must focus with determined smiles.
This is what we say,
At the looming prospect of showcase.
It’s going to be alright we say,
Working and working our days away,
Just with enough of our time to play,
writing on paper and screen.
Now this excitement,
Boiling thoroughly, our fears,
And now we know,
We always knew,
That as a showcase,
Not a large black hole sucking us in,
We would survive. Even thrive.
Showing you, not us, you,
What we have done,
What we have become,
Here in Japan,
We hope you understand.
