Daily missive for Wednesday the 28th of June.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 28th of June.

Privilege is
A presence
So hard to resist
And can bring with it
The belief
We fall beyond the realm
Of satire
An easy conviction
A foolish mistake
Perception is everything
Wobble a little
Watch out for the fall
Slapstick
Can make a fool
Of us all
It may be no disgrace
But end up flat
On your face
And see how the world
Laughs at but
Not with you.
There is a cruelty
In humour
No accident
Without design
No tease without malice
The butt of a joke
May never cry tears
Of joy
Believe me
Take care of words
They are signifiers
Of things rarely said
A slip of the tongue
Is a surer sign
Of distrust
Than a denial.
Are such things
Always true
Perhaps so
Perhaps not
But it is apparent
To me
Sincerity is key
And once you fake that
Nothing is sacred.
