Fancy journal there,

Tattered notebook here.

Humor where?

Anywhere but, here,

Of course.

Life is far to serious,

To do anything but

Whine. And Cry,

That is.

Angst and woes prevail.

Heart and Soul bearing,

Do no good.

Please regale me

With anything other than

Fake tears.

Fake tears about

A fake life

A fake love

A fake family

I'll offer this kernel,

You are

Just like your fake journal,

Fancy, with

No substance.
