A Collection of what may Questionably be Poems

Laugh Track

What’s so funny,

Why do you laugh?

I don’t see

Where the humour’s at.

Noise in the background

Playing on repeat

I may as well,

Admit defeat.

 

Laugh along

Sing a song

Clap your hands

Like there’s nothing wrong

 

It’s not even funny,

How unfunny this is.

No one sees the sadness,

There’s something amiss.

We’re all glued to our TV screens,

Are we even human beings?

 

I asked the question

Quite long ago

What’s the answer?

I still don’t know

Who am I?

Who is she?

We’re all cogs

In the same machine

Laugh along

Sing a song

Clap your hands

Like there’s nothing wrong

 

It’s not even funny,

How unfunny this is.

No one sees the sadness,

There’s something amiss.

We’re all glued to our TV screens,

Are we even human beings?

 

We’ve been found.

Sorted out,

Couldn’t keep the act up,

Now we’ll laugh out loud.

 

Laugh along

Sing a song

Clap your hands

Like there’s nothing wrong

We’re all glued to our TV screens,

We are all human beings.

 


 

Mirror

Look into a mirror,

Tell me what you see.

Do you see you,

Or do you see me?

 


 

The Making of Evil

I’d like to believe that no one is at fault

For the way their ludicrous life turns out.

It was circumstance that led to unkind behaviour and fate,

Which only created more cruelty and hate.

 

But if circumstance is to blame,

Then who is at fault when your life was tame?

 

Where does the chain of hatred start?

When does it get embedded in our hearts?

And how do some overcome and persevere,

While some succumb to the fear?

 

All it takes is a little seed,

Let’s not forget about the birds and the bees.

 

Is it a condition of human nature?

For what joy is there in power over other creatures?

Is it a part of our heart that can be fixed?

Or simply a shadow with whom we are transfixed?

 

The Devil doesn’t play games, you see,

He’s quite aware of what a horrid human you may already be.
