Made To Be A Laugh


Trying too hard

What am I?

Some kind of "wabbit"?

Just some "deranged bunny"?

How can laughter

Sound any more insane?

It's just too funny

My life is "the joke of the world"


__any ever one in

____and around my word

______has a soul purpose

________to laugh at me

The world is narcissistic

That only makes my brother

__look normal

But it makes me a "freak"

I guess even that is "hilarious"

If I knew any better

I'd only be more of myself

Wishing to wash away

__like the rain

And then burn away

__with the light of the sun


My oldest "enemy"

I wished my whole life for it

__to go away

Except when I went thru puberty

__for some reason


What a "laugh" I turned into

"Couldn't have grown any bigger, God?


I guess He's the comedian here

And I'm some kind of prop

Used to be a target

__for humor

____so ev'ry one can get a kick out of me

It doesn't matter that I have no choice

God doesn't give us a "say so"

__in anything

We're all just puppets

__pulled by the strings of a Higher Power

____of our choice


What a commitment to make

Couldn't even stay for tea

She had to run along now

Just like any one would do

__I guess

But I'm supposed to say

"At least she didn't shoot me

__in the head".....
