Quaff To Laugh
To quaff-if we feel callous
by John Sensele
Conceals the void we feel
When because we're jealous
Our sadness and sorrow we can't heal.
To quaff-if we fail to laugh
Conceals the limp in the life
We lead when pretend to be tough
To inflict misery on our wife.
To quaff-if we fear our shadow
Conceals the dark side
We feel when we can't say hullo
To the path that leads to our bliss bride.
To quaff-if we favour fright
Conceals the uneasiness of the secret
We carry day and night
As deep within our life lies a rotten regret.
