“Caretakers” – Who Will Watch Over Us?

They watch over us as we grow Providing love and kindness in a harsh world Under their protection we learn How the world works How we work in the world Then time passes and the roles may shift

Providing love and kindness in a harsh world

Under their protection we learn

How the world works

How we work in this world

Then time passes and the roles may shift

In their old age they need us to help them

To use the very ideas they gave us

We watch over them as they did for us

Guiding them as they grow weak

Yet even then they are still watching out for us

Ensuring we have learned the lessons we needed to know

And so the mantle is passed on

Now we are the Caretakers

“Black Jester”, A Poem For Kind People In An Unkind World

Black Jester, story by Lord_Rakdos a.k.a. Andrew Murray. Art is not the property of GeekyAntics network or author.

I tell jokes to hide a sad soul

I laugh to hide a crying child

I listen so no one else is alone

I wear bright colors to distract from red-rimmed eyes

I am kind because I don’t want others to suffer

I teach so others may learn from my mistakes

I lie so no one else need feel my sadness

I help so no one else need be like me

I am the Black Jester
