False Ecstasy

The sound of laughter’s beautiful
When it of ego isn’t full
When authentic’lly it be
Of genuine jollity

Lilting, light
Full of delight
For the lucky ear
Such a laughter hear

But when it’s sent upon the air
With motivations false, it scare
Sleeping babies all around
With its harsh and grating sound

No longer a lovely expression
Of happy inner delection
Now its only message be:

Insecure and panicky
Like the needs brought it to be
Doesn’t really mean a thing —
I to you attention bring

In order that you may feel
Legitimate, important, real
Something other than a fake
Who must such wild contortions make

Such an effort putting in
To petty validation win,
Pityingly, so I do —
Poor soul, I’m listening to you
