A Joker Isn't Always Funny


A joker isn’t always funny,

A house isn’t always a home,

A father isn’t always a dad,

A bad person isn’t always an enemy.

But twelve have passed, and thousands remain suffering.

And by now it is Thursday,

and the darkened chaos has been given light,

and society has surely forgotten the significance,

and the Joker’s hair wasn’t orange, it was green.
