Take A Final Bow

Don't get excited by your execution.
It and your life before was never really more
than a display to distract your fellow travelers
on this road trip going nowhere;
for that you get a standing ovation.
Now move along my child,
the gallows can't wait longer.
There are many in the show
and you are not the only star.
