My Jesters – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Laugh – Word of the Day



My Jesters

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah, ca, ca, ca, hahahahah, rrrrrr,
Slowly I open an eye,
laughter penetrating
as a question arises;
are they laughing at me?
The sun is rising fast,
light coming in around the curtains
but I’m not late.
kookaburras in the gum tree,
laughter infectious,
HT5 for the soul,
from my jesters who
telegraph a lighter way
to treat life
to laugh into this day,
such a wonderful beginning.

    This morning i told Marla that i couldn’t afford to go to the International Flatulence Convention… it would cost too much for gas.
