What makes a Joker more valuable than a King?

No Love for The Joker


Anthony Labson


What makes a Joker more of a man

Than a king?


A king has hundreds of people

that serve him, prepare his food,

clothes him, cleans him,

and gets everything he wants.


Covered with jewelry, surrounded

by stone walls and steel.

He can start wars with whomever

And take other people’s land.


The people he conquers become his slaves

and he uses glory to explain chaos.

For that his name will go into the record books

and generations will remember his name.


A king’s ambition for power and the

preservation of his legacy is his only concern

even at the expense of the people “He” serves.

A Joker doesn’t need all this.


All a joker asks for is a smile

and he is willing to get it by his own

expense if necessary.

For that, you call him a fool.
