I wanted to take this life seriously,
believing in the integrity of solidity,
honoring its physical majesty,
but the world has shown itself a joke.
And so I recommend to myself and all,
to treat it as such: a lighthearted affair.
For there is no other recourse,
if we are to keep our sanity.
This is not a cruel joke mind you,
not a trick meant to humiliate.
Just a funhouse built for surprise,
merely a stage to entice the senses.
