Might As Well Laugh

 

might as well laugh

I would, were it not so tragic

so great a target for ridicule

is difficult to ignore

one could have a field day

were one so inclined

it would be fighting

an unarmed man

 

yet he has weapons as well

scorn and slander among them

all too successful

though their source be a lie

 

A LIE! We are silenced by a lie!

 

for who would believe

that thought to be comic

or without integrity

 

might as well laugh

I would, were it not so tragic

that the TRUTH is ridiculed

while a lie is believed

and those who could live

are shackled to death

unwilling to know

Who would set them free

 

yes, might as well laugh

but I’d much rather weep

at the ease in which this

ridiculous lie

has affected my world

so many millions

so lost

because they cannot see around it
