It's not funny
to amuse oneself
at someone else's direct expense.
uplifts the spirit
instead of putting someone down.
What matters is not so much
what you say or how you say it but
whether you are laughing with someone
or laughing at someone.
It is wise to be gentle in one's jests,
for Trickster listens to all the laughter in the world,
and if there are any unhappy tears in it
then you may be certain
Trickster will aim a banana peel at the heel.
