It’s easy to find a blurry face

To take the place of another

In an unflinching wave of laughter,

Jokes and quick wit, and mockery after. 

It’s easy to find a shoe that will fit

When all you say will drown out, bit by bit,

When it does not matter who you are

Or the powers you believe above par,

As long as you can play a children’s game:

When colour and brilliance fade away

Mindless mirth in sepia tones

Ricocheting from accepting walls. 

It’s easy to find a soul to lock out, 

Aloof shoulders, serious glint in eye, 

Too stupid to know how to rise high;

Perfect prelude to soon shaking back

As a tail of merriment latches on, 

Mighty beyond extinction.
