What’s with faces that need to hide
Whenever they appear outside?
Belonging to the human race
Requires that you have a face
It’s not a bigoted request
And failure doesn’t mean arrest
But without cheeks, a mouth and nose
It’s just fabric from head to toes
Floating like ghosts on Halloween
That private world of the unseen
Shouldn’t mean immunity
From joining our community
Of men and women, boys and girls
Dark hair, blond hair, buzz cut, curls
We wink, we frown, we cry, we grin
Draw your curtains and let us in.
