If we shadows have offended,
Two minutes — then your suffering’s ended.
But if we shadows did amuse you,
There’s a way we sure could use you.
Despite audience love and critics’ praise,
Our show will close in fourteen days
We’d like two weeks of sold-out shows, [We’d like to sell out all our shows]
So tell your friends, tell your foes.
Post your raves on the Book of Face,
Twitter, Instagram — every place:
“A show that’s one of Life’s great pleasures —
This musical called ‘Desperate Measures.’”
“The funniest show I’ve seen in years!”
Bore every friend of yours to tears.
(Tell them who you like the best:
The sexy guy in the purple vest.)
No colloquy without a mention.
We thank you for your kind attention.
