Shake the hand and wave the wand,
Hoping that the pain has gone,
For years she’s kept me by her side,
Since the day the last one died.

With each joke I die a little,
Made miserable by each riddle,
Condemned to dance and entertain,
Until compassion ends her reign.

All the clothes no longer fit,
All my tricks have lost their wit,
The cane is splintered, the cap torn,
My arms tired, my smile worn.

Time has led my hair to gray,
Age has made my teeth decay,
Yet I’ll dye one blue and the other green,
Then laugh and sing before my queen.

My acrobatics now cause alarm,
My juggling has lost all its charm,
Such a life knows but unrest,
A life that is itself a jest.

Very nice my friend. Anymore?
I am the poet of the body and I am the poet of the Soul. The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are with me. The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate into a new tongue.
