The Jester’s Medium
By: Sadhika NANDA (Hall 11)
To provoke half a laugh
Or provoke a man
To cut your smile in half
And make you hit the ceiling fan!
My job is such that it does all of the above,
At times with no luck or love.
But to just do my job is to have achieved!
Sometimes, I have to be crisp at work,
Sometimes a little dull will do.
Silence too does the job- at least I get a smirk;
Work, although, I do every day,
Especially on the ones that are blue!
I can speak every tongue,
Some sweetly, some just rough.
I am at my best when I am young:
Filled with just the freshest stuff.
You can’t imagine who I am,
Or who it is that I provoke.
I am usually light as a gram-
My name is joke!
