Dreams of a Better Day

When the laughter dies 
    please take note 
of what you experience 
Do 
not 
shrink 
From the draught of dark wine 
    the dark angel 
has brought you 
When the laughter dies 
   please take not 
of what the new reality 
can teach you 
Laughter is a friend 
    but it has dangers 
Laughter is 
Laughter
