Jest

Silly? Be more serious.

Your eyes stay fixed when I’m calm and focused.

I worry my jokes have made me a cartoon character.

Every thing I do or say seems funny to you.

No more smiling,

Fewer words,

Being a man of fewer words shouldn’t hurt,

No more performances as a clown,

Relinquishing my jester’s crown.

*

Even a fool is concerned wise,

Closed mouth, recognized,

Regarding foolishness, severed ties.
