It’s Funny

GettyImages-641351486-f8dd321

long ago before the people of earth lost their civility, their compassion, their servitude

the jesters made us laugh

at ourselves

the ancient songs and story tellers entertained at the foot an enchanted gypsy fire by the light of a tallow torch

it’s funny

because it’s gone

so gone

the old ways, the wisdom, the hard work

replaced by lazy donkeys only interested in the images on a phone and never buy, or own or read an actual book

so serious and easily offended

leaving the home ready for a insult

everywhere

it’s funny

or is it?

endless chatter resulting in nothing

that lasts or makes us laugh

I long for a new generation of jesters

that makes me laugh

and that’s funny
