Impersonation



You can endure forever once captured by mimicry.
Your common mannerisms are portrayed in parody.

Your manifested aura, enacted by pantomime,
is trenchant embodiment of incarnate space and time.

Your idiosyncrasies, distorted by caricature,
are representations that expostulate and slur.

Your quirky affectation, imitated by lampoon,
is dramatization of a ridiculous buffoon.

Your stylized adaptations, reflected by mockery,
are satirically impressed as burlesque travesty.

Your personification, illustrated by charade,
is depiction of your life parroted through pasquinade.

You can endure forever once aped by similitude.
Your specific behavior is the mirrored attitude.
