JOKER

Jokes are the barrier
People let down between themselves
A spoken word can wash away years of building
Leave in its wake a ruptured earth
Worse than as if life never happened.

Watch that joke, it’s no joke
The damage will outlive the laughter
Long long after
The careless word you spoke.

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije.
