Silly? Be more serious.
Your eyes stay fixed when I’m calm and focused.
I worry my jokes have made me a cartoon character.
Every thing I do or say seems funny to you.
No more smiling,
Being a man of fewer words shouldn’t hurt,
No more performances as a clown,
Relinquishing my jester’s crown.
Even a fool is concerned wise,
Closed mouth, recognized,
Regarding foolishness, severed ties.
