The Fool’s Ballad

April 24, 2016 § Leave a comment

We are,
forever alone,
holders of the lights,
in the most brutal of nights,
yet when sunshine shall rain,
they will bar us all over again,
despised and rejected,
we are,
forever alone…

We are,
forever hurt,
politeness is you-they say,
our praise is sung all day,
yet when it’s time to brandish that scythe,
our heads are the ones in easy sight,
exposed and unsuspecting,
we are,
forever hurt…

We are,
forever the incorrigible idiots,
fall and rise, fall and rise,
always paying the ultimate price,
yet we never learn- the ways of the world,
sitting ducks, chopping block, white flag unfurled,
believing and naive,
we are,
forever the incorrigible idiots…

Fin.
