Poetry: A Farce of the Humorous

In this free verse poetry “A Farce of the Humorous.”

I wanted to describe the role of a comedian, some think of her as a farce or buffoon if weren’t to know of her love for comedy and her work. Maybe you can read this explanation through this piece of poetry. Adding a digital art piece to delight the eyes too. Happy Thursdays Beautiful People!

She made a buffoonery of herself.
A farce of the humorous.
But she was magical.
A contagious—light always beckoning.
Begging the eyes for a view.
The ears to listen to and when you did.
The results were always the same.
First just a smile. Then. The thunderous sound of this laughter.
She held the crowd under siege,
The way She placed words
between her teeth, and how her body shifted.
After the first line, she held them in a trance.
Addicted to her words and laughter.
The faces she made as she told each story,
left many tears streaming upon THEIR faces.
Then a hush came over the crowd,
as she pronounced, this is the last one.
They screamed for more, more, and more.
A great comedian was she.

  1. Hi Dorinda, I loved the imagery and the poem except for the line she way placed the words. It stopped me and made me wonder what the author was saying or was it a typo. Always a pleasure to visit a fellow poet.
