Purpose and Meaning – The Jester’s Song

Everybody, clap your hands and dance along!

The Jester’s Song

Life and death are subtly related,
never separated, always one.
Priests and saviors offer up exemptions,
promising exceptions, giving none.

Bibles, Korans, words can not protect you
they will just infect you, numb your brain.
Magic chants and humble supplications
all your machinations, bring no gain.

Hearts stop, brains stop, cancer it will eat you,
finally defeat you, off you go.
Doctors, surgeons, try all their gyrations
cuts and medications, still its so.

All of us must face annihilation
it’s a transformation all will know.
Rich one, poor one nothing’s going to save you
straight off to your grave you both will go.

Ride the waves of dark and light emotion
life is like an ocean, ups and downs.
Those who think they know the way to change things
truly rearrange things, they’re just clowns

Pay and pray and spend your time a fretting
all of that upsetting is a crime.
Laugh and dance and live your life with passion
try your best to fashion joy through time

    try your best to fashion joy through time.”
    Life is this, it needs to be underlined….
