O Thalia, Muse Of Comedy - Poem by Raj Arumugam

O Thalia
O muse of Comedy
we have much need of you
these days of anxiety
of men and women of severe words and intent
so then Let us Laugh
there’s too much sobriety
too many of grave countenance

tear down the masks
O Thalia, Muse of Comedy;
let us hold up the mask of Comedy instead
for all this seriousness and ambition of the world
and the words and fire of Great Men of Ambition and Prophecy
all that is but petty, vain and self-promotion;
the world and all establishment
is all laughable, ridiculous, plain comedy
The Mask of Comedy is the Mirror of Truth;
hold it up to the World
O sacred Thalia, Muse of Comedy
