Someone Should Start Laughing

Someone Should Start Laughing

 

Hafiz was a Persian poet who lived in the 14th century.

 

I have a thousand brilliant lies

For the question:

How are you?

 

I have a thousand brilliant lies

For the question:

What is God?

 

If you think that the Truth can be known

From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean

Can pass through that tiny opening

Called the mouth,

 

O someone should start laughing!

Someone should start wildly laughing—

Now!
