The Comedian

There once lived a Comedian in a club
His eye was a goat's and his foot a stub
But when he started talking, you forgot it all
For he was full of tricks, humour and gall
In twenty seconds and two lines he could make
A divorce lawyer, a snake
A foot doctor, a fraud
A real estate agent, God
The weatherman bore the brunt of his act
The actress he turned hooker but with such tact
The worst off was the President without a doubt
He was always being caught with his foot in his mouth
There was nothing the Comedian could not make funny
He could make you laugh over a nose that was runny
He had strange faces he could pull in a lark
And face paint that would glow in the dark
But if you met him after the show
Sat with him for a moment, only then you'd know
Behind the laughs and the jokes he'd thrown
Lived the saddest man you've ever known

On Humanity's Last Breadth.

Ghosts of those roses will arise, which had lived -
With stars, planets and lightyears of love inside.
