When a Joker is above 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.
