Poetry by F. Qaoud

If I were picked from the crowd
by a famous comedian
I’d startle him
By doing a somersault right on the stage.
With anger streaming from my eyes
Without a trace of smile.

And let the clown horse around and bluster,
Because the year when I was born,
Made me believe that all the laughter
Is nothing but a boisterous uproar.
