The Joker

The stage is set. The performers have performed. The audience have been through the adventure, the magic, the thrill. Yet it isnt enough. It can never be without another performance, the performance for which everybody is here.
After a short wait, the curtain is raised again, the performer you've been waiting for walks in. And without speaking a word, makes you smile at the least. And he begins, begins the show, the real show for you. You laugh, you laugh and you laugh.

With a smile on the face
With his actions full of laughing grace
And his intentions clear
He is gonna make you laugh oh dear

His performance is unmatched
He gives you a laugh undetached
He ends the show on a happy note
While he goes back with emotions afloat

The show is over
So is his smile
All he had to do
Was only for a while
Now he is by himself
All alone, and his mask on the shelf

He makes you laugh
When in a crowd
When by himself
In tears he's drowned

He walks in the rain
So that no one sees
That false is his laughter
And untrue his glee's

When the sun rises
Its another day
When he cheats himself with his mask
And keeps his emotions at bay

The show never stops,
Neither will he
He will still make you happy
Till his last breath flees

He will always make you laugh
Laughed upon
Laughed at
And everyone will always wonder
Can he ever be sad?

When he gets old or predictable,
He will be replaced
Even when he dies
No one cares as someone else will take his place!
