Comedy, Divine ?

COURT FOOL, n. The plaintiff.

~ Ambrose Bierce 

Comedy, Divine ?

Laugh as if your lives depended on it

The wisdom of humor often falls on deaf ears

Just because something's funny doesn't mean that it's trivial

Comedians are often overlooked for pointing out what's obvious

But few others can put matters so succinctly or pointedly

Recall; Attic theater is represented by both tragic and comic masks

Spreading mirth might be the least appreciated of all art forms

Most people are either unable or refuse to look past any crudity

They miss coded messages mischievously packaged within jokes

Which is why the fool wields such secret power

Play's that thing wherein lies ensnared mind of a king —

Seriously now folks, laugh like your very lives depend on it!

I challenge you to a multi-movement poem. I like this tone, but you could do more w/ a juxtaposition of character/plot. I could see you writing allegorical farce or something like that, to accompany this. Do you know what I mean? I think you've been taking the voice of the Chorus too frequently lately. You're good at it, but that's all the more reason to stretch my friend.
