A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life. ~ Hugh Sidey~

Dedicated to the humorist Ed Matlack

 Our Court Jester

He is our court Jester with a smile and a grin
Coursing the page with his thoughts our chagrin
Many a smile and a question mark left
To all the poets he’s left and bereft

Through all his prose and his poems his mind seeks
Gathers his thoughts and releases them Eeek!
However we look to them for this great smile
While he is posting his thoughts and his whiles

Un-caged he’s running from John’s power net
Laughing and running throwing prose to him catch
But laugh we do so, and we comment and hark
Actually man you are rather smart!

So daily we look to see what more is said
And shake in our boots for what enters our head
But it is all good as we say harmonically
A poet and friend throughout here we all be!

But to look under the write is the poets’ own task
Sometimes we all carry our thoughts under mask
For wit and intelligence surely he bears
A thinker, a jester, a comrade he shares

So my dear fellow please tarry this way
For we all look forward to your prose every day
Enlighten our lives with your humor and wit
Never to worry you are gifted at this!

You must know this man very well Lily, he must have a very good sense of humor. My husband did, he always shared his smile to others and old stories. I miss him. It's good to have the gift of humor and make others smile dear.

You know, it's an honor title to be court jester and very few are worth to carry that name.
Ed is one of those very few and according to his smile he knows it.

A beautiful tribute Carolee

This is very funny, I think this man must be a friend. I also get the idea from others reviews they also know him and his sense of humor. Great flow and very funny

I don't know this guy Lily, but it looks like I need to! This was funny, but also insightful to him! Thanks a great write!

Yes that guy, Ed Matlack, surely is gifted at something, but what that is, he has no idea...whether he is high or str8, I truly think he would be better to work for a shop that has tackle & for him specifically to wrap bait...?

Well you definately capotured the spirit and the heart of Ed...well done.

A very though provoking poem Carolee. Well done!

I love Ed's character.
I enjoy his humor too.
For laughter lifts us up when we are sad and blue.
But we should never forget.
The oceans changing tides.
For The Lord God knows our happiness and our pain.
He knows all of our feelings deep down inside.
Ed once joked about not wanting to be like a mother.
He will never be that, because Ed is a spiritual brother.

Peace, Love, and Blessings,

John Michael Domino
