The Jester

 

Everybody needs a jester
in their life somewhere

Who can make you laugh
in the midst of despair

Always ready with a story
to lighten your darkest days

And adds a little color
to all of your grays

Ready with a joke
or maybe even two

Wants to make you laugh
when you’re the most blue

For a jester can be
the best kind of friend

When your pain they see
great effort will they spend

No matter if the laugh
does come from a joke

That at their own self
the fun they must poke

‘Cause a jester often goes
all for the extra mile

If that’s what it takes
just to make you smile!
