The Joker (Cruel Laughters) Poem by Mohammed Hassan (Piracy In The Mediterranean)

The Joker (Cruel Laughters)

Rating: 5.0

what is the big deal to be a joker?
by laughing and hanging all around
he will always be the winner
by laughing and making new jokes

he will always be that lucky one
because he's smiling to that naked world
but inside he's completely done
he's still laughing, making new jokes

they see him and point their fingers
his scars placed with the green blots
they're laughing looking at each other
falling asleep beneath these bright spots

if I am the one who can make you laugh?
a hypocrite to the world that never dies
trade with me and lose your life
this is the backstage of your lies

suffocated by all these warm claps
he waited for that night when he was falling down

he can only run when the act is done none to help him
he can find fear sleeping in his bed
I know that he holds his fears inside
this world stopped and threw him aside
in that night just leave him be
