Poem 73

Woman tears

When a fool cries

he is a laughing stock.

When a  fool cries

Integrity  is gone.

When a fool cries

Credibility is shot.

When a fool cries

Realisation hits home.

When a fool cries

We say we saw it coming.

When a fool cries

All hope dies.

When a fool cries

Loneliness takes hold.

When a  fool cries

We stand back and watch.

When a fool cries

We want him to stop.

When a fool cries

We want him to go away.

When a fool cries

We might ask why?

When a fool cries

We look the other way.

When a fool cries

Who now will tell the joke?

A horse walks into a bar and the barman says: Hey why the long face?

Because he won’t be seen again!

Not in 2013

Happy New Year to all my readers, I hope the fun and foolishness continues into 2014. May you all have the best year, good health and write more wonderful words for me to read.
