Make No Mistake - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN
Make no mistake, much laughter masks hid fears
or insecurities few wish to show
to heartless world that rats, repays with tears
of spite lightheartedness that seems to glow.
Beware comparing Man with species strange:
tease chimpanzees, they'll freeze bared teeth, barred grin,
animal tics may mimic human range
emotions seen without, belied within.
Laughter releases stress to compensate
inner tensions, compensations which,
like yawning, are contagious, may create
superficial empathy that brief
supplies society displaying
the need to feed from mirage motions playing.
