The Joker


r169_457x256_4942_The_Joker_2d_fantasy_joker_portrait_picture_image_digital_artI’ve seen the fall
And know the position
Of every card in your
Colorful deck ~

Do you really imagine
Your trickery fools me ~
It’s clear in your eyes
You’re in over your head ~

God help me ~ an
Innocent ~ caught in the
Crossfire ~ helpless and
Frightened ~ a pawn for
The sacrifice ~

You should be grateful ~
Cruelty to children
Is not in my nature ~
And later you will be
Though you hate me now ~

Lucky for you that you’ve
Come to the right place ~
And luckier still that I’m
Feeling generous ~



Now shall we discuss the
Saving of you ~ and I will
Decide on my price ~ and
You if you’re willing to pay ~

Don’t look so downhearted
You may like my terms ~
But then after all
What else can you say ~

So what will it be
My fine young friend ~
Come give me a kiss
To seal our bargain ~

You may tell me later ~
If you think it was
Worth your while ~
Let us begin ~

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  1. Is this some sort of joke! Just kidding. I found it to be an enlightening evaluation of the range of thinking The Joker might have. Jokers are only used on special occasions during specific games. Seems like he hoodwinks a few players especially those addicted to gaming.


    • Whatever this particular Joker got up to, he ended up in hot water for sure. Perhaps the cure will be worth the while.
