The Comedian

He had the talent to tell a joke
to look at himself and make a poke
at the aspects of his life
filled with strife.

He could turn the screw
to reveal what we knew
letting us laugh out loud,
anonymous in a crowd.

He could have been famous,
illuminating jokes for the ignoramus,
but in the bright light he faltered

became afraid and it altered
his ability to step out on stage
to tap into that unspoken rage

to describe his conceptions
with finely tuned perceptions
exposing himself in his humor.
