Role Of joker


I had fully rehearsed
With so much of attention and shared
Each sentence with clarity
To show confidence and capability

I was to play the role of joker
With cigar in hand and to look like chain smoker
It was going to be live show
But I had never smoked this before or know

Teacher told me to be cautious
Never to show that I was shy and serious
The character demanded full justice
I reassured teacher with full of promises

I entered hall with cigar in mouth
The smoke was going from north to south
It made formation of circle
Soon I had breathing trouble

I still kept on the show
It was terrible blow
I was turning joker for self
Audience was in mood to see more puffs

I bravely inhaled few puffs
Soon I started to cough
I was not used to inhale
Soon the face turned pale

The teacher showed me exit door
I had excelled but show was not that poor
Everybody praised my effort
I could it fairly well with teacher’s support

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
