Joker Fool Poem by Marylyn McIntyre

Weighing the Joker

who is the bigger fool really

the believer or the non

the hunter or the game

the genius or savant

who is the bigger fool really

the worker or the bum

the school girl or the whore

when all is said and done

black or white

ripe or raw

smart or dumb

old or new

young or old

who, who, who

please tell me

who is the bigger fool really

is it you

or is it i?

***
