Turn off the projector, laughs the jester

-The_Court_Jester-_(2)Majestic jester in jackal jokes
The guru guffaws, the giraffe chokes
On morsels of memories that block the flow
Now anger softens to bittersweet woe

Reign in the story, release the metaphory
Tap tap tap out the allegory
Up come core wounds, protect my soul
My dragon awakens, fire…takes a toll

An unmet need, a tragic belief
My innocence, jaded, seeks relief
Inside my storm I see the eye
My inner sense gives wings to fly

Turn off the projector, laughs the jester
Know the dark but do not let her
Shadow cast upon your path
Make you forget “This too shall pass”
