The Jester

Forcing me upon monkey suits and contriving me to entertain

I try to say so otherwise but my complaints are all in vain

They shoot guns at my feet, to make me do a silly dance

Threaten me with scarlet tomatoes to ensure absolutely no defiance

.

Dignity for decadence, ego for fifteen minutes of fame

A couple tastes of crystal sugar for a supply of lifetime shame

Masks upon masks plastered crudely, thick makeup to hide my frown

Am I still a human being or just another rundown clown?

.

They say to take one for the team, they tell me I’m unfair

When they’re the one making me dangle my nobility on a strand of hair

I wish no more, this life of jests and pie and mockery thrown to my face

Next time you catch me, I’ll be walking slowly towards the end of my life race.

Bullying Hope

I approve of the way you smatter with applause

To give false light to my aching cause

Your sovereign lies might get the pierrots on track

But I’m simply afraid all it does is make my heart crack

.

I like the way you think I don’t watch over

When you pick up choices on a four-leaf clover

Luck? Decision? What it is you pursue badly?

Darling, ever think of joining proper reality?

.

I quite fancy it when you fall over your face

To apologise for being such a frowsy disgrace

Like I’d care about you enough to accept it

Harsh? Not as harsh as the rock that caused your miserable shit

.

I do find it amusing when you cannot even cry

Because of the thick wool pulled over your sad eyes

I should be thankful that there’s a big bad wolf

Gnawing on wool enough just to see the truth

.

In fact, I love every single foolish thing that you do

The way you trip and worm your way around with iron shoes

But you know, there’s only one thing I surely loathe

And it’s the fact that I’m stupid enough to keep clawing at my own throat.
