The Game

I commit to myself

I commit to you

I commit to whatever

You tell me to do

I’m rough around the edges

And chilled to the bone

No more spark in my eye

Cruel seeds have been sown

There is something inside

Palpable and fearsome

I can’t let you touch it

The Joker of my kingdom

We commit to the game

Joker and Pauper

Get a load of me

And get a load of the horror.

    1. Now you got me going too. Love the way you think. FIY, 1989 Batman is still the best one… If you say the Batman vs Superman is better, I’ll do something, not anything violent, but something. 😀

  1. I know I was pulling your leg.. Its just that the Joker in the Photo and the Load comment brought back the memory.. Sorry.. But I sensed you got offended…My apologies….You can remove the comment if you like.. But Bear with me I Can be an ass sometime….


      1. Well i get it now. A knowledgeable person once told me that there are a*****es(yes, he said that word),
        who would ruin a perfectly good post by making a comment that has nothing to do with the post. And start a whole new conversation.
        I laughed when I heard that.
        Only now do I realise after reading your Comments that I have become that a*****e.
        Again Lesson learnt (the hard way),

      2. It’s all good, Sight11… we’re all human here after all. I’m just trying to become a better writer and get to the next level. I appreciate a challenge once in a while… it keeps me in check. Take it easy! 😀


    1. Thanks, I think? Or maybe not… That’s the awe of the things we see… the interpretation is in the eye of the beholder. What you see as a ‘pretty picture’ may, in fact, be viewed differently by someone else. Beauty can be deceptive.
