Some puppets arms are lifeless,
while their feet don't feel the floor;
but other puppets seem like
they're alive, and nothing more.
These "puppets" look like people,
but the puppeteers are there;
they twist and jerk the subtle strings
and rarely ever care.
These puppets live, to an extent;
they roam around the earth
never in control, and never
knowing what they're worth.
Though many could prove valuable
they just can't see their "spark",
so unseen strings proceed to pull
on shadows in the dark.
