My name is the Joker!

By Winter Rose

My name is the Joker!

I like my job
I like it a lot
Just don't call me crazy
Because I'm really Not

Here, take my card
Look there's me on the back!
All the cards dealt
I'm the worst in the pack

People call me a clown
But I'm a Joker thereafter
I prefer secrets and mischief
To children and laughter


Did I tell you how I got these Scars?

I was leaving a bar
I'd been drinking till light
A man came up behind me and shouted
'You owe me your life!'

I played cards with this man
Just a game of Black Jack or two....
He took a knife to my face and sliced, deep
'As a reminder who you owe your life to'


But its not all gloom and doom
I take it with strife
Plus a gun kills too quick
So I use a knife

I can see I disgust you
Why so Serious? I ask
But you can't even look at me
Would you prefer if I wore a mask?

Think you can catch me do you?
Shall we have a wager?
Because I believe what doesn't kill you
Simply makes you....... Stranger



By the way, have I told you how I got these Scars?

I used to be quite the player
With a different woman almost every night
I said 'I love you.' to all of them
I guess that wasn't at all right

This one needy blonde wanted more than that night
And hunted me down after dawn
'Lets put a smile on that face' she taunted
Then my face was made bloody and torn



Ooh so you want to play?
Lets have a little fun shall we
How about we upset the established order
Come on... come on... come on... Kill Me!

Just look at me, Look. At. Me.
You have all these rules and you think they'll save you
I'm the joker in my world made without rules
Look at me, and you'll see what I can do!

HAHAHAAA. You think this is funny?
I don't make plans, this is all I got
I'll take over the city and turn it to madness
Just don't call me crazy,
Because I'm really really Not.



Do you want to know how I got these scars?

Truthfully?

















You don't.

    A friend once met his daughter's new boyfriend who had numerous piercings. He didn't quite know what to say until he heard himself say "what happened to you, did your fishing tackle box blow up in your face?". Great line for future fathers maybe, cheers and I missed this piece last month.

    you've just inspired a batman marathon! The feel to this poem is creepy but in a good way, I love how it kinda jerks back and foth. Like, when you read it, it feels off beat, just like the joker- You did a really great job
