Rembrandt laughing (based on the painting 'Rembrandt Laughing' by Rembrandt)
how do you get to smile
and how do you get to laugh so often?
how do you get humor?
you get that
yourself too seriously;
but if you think
you’re so important
(and you’ve got doctrines that give you importance;
and you’ve systems that make you important;
and you are a religious leader, perhaps?
or a serious follower who's hell-bent on going to heaven?)
then the goddess of humor and laughter
and you’re left with greedy gremlins
that eat your heart out
