Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed.
-- Bennett Cerf
So what's my laughing all about?
It's about patriots with their big, loving heart
presenting their concerns so noble and clean
but spreading hate, tearing their country apart
projecting their own misery on a political scene.
It's about friends whose closeness is so unstable
as if depending on weather or the time of the day
pinning on you some of their deliberate label
and expecting you to live up to that portrait.
It's about those families using you for ears
'cause their soap opera needs to be heard
or to clap to their possessions with cheers
but not asking about you with single word.
It's about religionists' mouthful of love
claiming that capacity for a divine joy
with inspirations received from above
while intolerant and so easy to annoy.
It's about leaders contending so loud and clear
how their passion is the welfare of the nation
but in reality just promoting their own career
with every claim nothing but a fabrication.
It's about every other hypocrite and phony
and there are too many to complete this list
all having in common some deceiving baloney
a bunch of clowns too funny to make me pissed.
