a sensitive soul just entered onto the stage wearing something silly!


I am deadly serious don’t laugh at me

If you do

I’ll think you did it intentionally

To put me down

I am no clown

I wear a frown

I try to be macho

If you laugh I’ll try to catch you

Bring you down with a rugby tackle

After that laugh or that cackle

I am deadly serious

It wasn’t just a turn of phrase

I am not just going through a phase

that I’ll get through

I am not like a teenager in a bad mood

If you laugh I think it rude

and I have taken up kick boxing

so don’t mess with me dude!

I may not be the muscles from Brussels

Or like Russell Crowe that angry actor

But if you laugh at me I’ll go off like a nuclear reactor

I hate detractor’s critics and such

If they laugh at me I won’t be able to take it it’ll all be too much

A vein will go pop in my head

The stress will kill me and I will be dead!

So don’t laugh at me unless I laugh first

Otherwise either you or I will be dead who knows who first

and my family will fear the worst

as I have been cursed with this disposition

of being sensitive for my own good!

◄ I held you like a diamond in my hands
