Does it take someone pissed most of the time

to find his pleasure in writing satirical stuff

coating his literary venom in a rhyme

coming out with a poetic bluff.


But, how about genuinely jolly dude

who finds human race madly amusing

which often puts him in the joking mood

with no intent to harm, even cause bruising.


In a mirror I see him every morning

that empty innocent look so deceiving

he sticks his tongue at me with no warning

then winks as a secret partner before leaving.


And then I hear him whistle some happy song

or is it already evening that he does it again

between those smiles at something wrong

even if it involves a discomfort or a pain.


Well, satire is just an attitude of ease

of taking all imperfections with a smile

while presented with little innocent tease

never with anything that's unfriendly or vile.


It's also a test to reader's reactive mode

their level of stiffness in a too serious mind

or chance for their own funny views to unload

almost like a sincere way for the heart to unwind.

        Lela --- Thanks for reminding me about this "one-party-system" in my mind --- doing what's fun without an opposition to spoil it. I know a president who would give a fortune to know how to.
