Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
The human race has one really effective weapon, and that's laughter.
-- Mark Twain
I laugh at happiness with an attached price
when people are buying their joy of living
just giving their misery expensive spice
then see it as their great achieving.
I laugh at every version of hypochondriac breed
brainwashed into their fragile health condition
wallowing in that constant ridiculous need
to see doctors and watch their nutrition.
I laugh when patriotism goes to a fanatic extent
losing nerves over things beyond their control
not seeing how foolishly their time is spent
as they've never changed anything at all.
Or I laugh at ignoramuses and world-fixers as well
who appear knowledgeable with so much to teach
while using teenage vocabulary, or can't even spell
among them here and there, those who will preach.
I laugh at politicians, those masters of deception
those grateful that every second a sucker is born
well, take me for one of liberated exceptions
that has grown above Santa and Unicorn.
And I laugh at myself among all other funny types
with all different reasons that are never enough
all of us in a marching parade with bag pipes
while God above is joining me in my laugh.
