Many times

the thought that wanders

on the life of joker

makes me wonder

just to earn a meager sum

to feed the empty stomachs

he makes fun of himself

on the ramp of circus


he surrenders his sanity.


we are petrified

on the slightest pretext

of the jugglers

who try to steal our vanity.

Let us learn a lesson

from the clowns

who leads his life

making fun of himself


never emotes tears.

Let us turn our minds


jokers of the circus

enjoying life


the nasty remarks

who try to breach

our happiness.
