villain

i wish i were
the villain
all the good lines
and the attention
always goes
to the bad guy
while bit players
like myself
are left on the
sidelines watching
the story unfold
i would twirl
my mustaches
as i hatched my
next nefarious scheme
rather than being
given no backstory
and disappearing
before the final act
the villain gets
the screentime
while fools
get cut due to
time constraints
