The Imposters

Speak with authority
Let the words
Last vestiges of dead languages
Rife with history
Flow smooth as butter from your tongue
And smile
Do not falter

Walk with confidence
Let your white coat
And stethoscope
Silence the uncertainty
As you push and prod
And smile
Do not hesitate

Laugh with ease
Let your jubilation
Wave off the lost hours
The long nights
The sorrows, the vigils, the fears
And smile
Do not waver
Or They’ll Know
