Comradrie and doldrums

Cantankerous in joy
rendered with an unthinking mind
in absentia of contrition
all partook chewed and savored
rolled around.

Joker phooey.
An erred judgment
whiplashed a laughing back
searing loved ones
Clowned now clam
borough in knowledge
that gloom and sorrow glanced.

"This is for keeps, no one
wants it passed around."
This is actuality steeped
in melancholia and cast airtight.

a chewy envenomed cud
hard to swallow
unsuitable for weaned ones.

Joy I shared, sorrow I keep.

Shame, shame
Joker shame
missing a creator
seek no absolution
judgment and judge spell a
perennial day of reckoning
shame joker shame.
