I’m laughing at humanity,
At those who live in vain
They call my love “insanity”
To make themselves feel sane
They say they know reality
Not seeing what is real
They laugh at my formality
Not knowing what I feel

They say they have agility
But all they have is age
They brag about stability
While acting on a stage
And they ignore stupidity
To make themselves look smart
They envy my ability
To have an open heart

I agree with Balladeer, Master. I bow down, and join you in your laughing at this so-called humanity.

Aside from signatures (which I have yet to find my own )...Master, this poem was a work of art. I couldn't find a thing wrong with it anywhere! And it says so much! Add my laughter is with everyone else's... along with my praise for your poetry!
