Who Is Behind My Satirical Stuff: A Poem
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.
