The Jester

A king once had a jester in his court
a man with whom he had a deep rapport
A day came when the king chose to inquire:
"Does your work not make you the biggest liar?"
The jester merely smirked, as was his Way
"My lord, if I have ever lived a day,
I'm dancing on Sirat, the hair-thin bridge
(I guess you all have heard, 'the shoe that fits')
And if it ever happened that I fell
I would see in that good humor's morsel"
Then, with these mirthful words, the court was pleased
They cheered the jester on; the king appeased.
