Once a Joker came to my home

Once a Joker came to my home
With him I went to Moon on a full moon night
The Joker cracked as usual a joke
And then one by one..
The volcanoes cried in laughter
The asteroids hanging around with cosmic guffs
The stars closer, like a shower of light spots
Invited us to their lands and worlds
Everything was nice and happy
Then a lady came
She was strikingly beautiful
Clad in a blue and white sari
With a pearl of tears in her eyes
She told the Joker ' My people need you '
We came back on her wings
The Joker became a poet
Me a Joker
