Lebanese Jester

Me, my Lebanon, and I.com weblog

Jester !

The old “nick name” I used is surfacing again.

This “Jester” has chosen to lay low for over twelve years in order to survive.
This “Jester” has started his journey filled with love, heartache, deception and hope.
This “Jester” indulged into politics, and lost his purpose.
This “Jester” is now reminiscing of why he was shunned by many.
This “Jester” is now aware that the tears he once shed are no longer applicable.
This “Jester” now knows that he took the easy way out.
This “Jester” regrets having succumbed to the threats.
This “Jester” doubts his own wisdom.
This “Jester” still recalls why he called himself a jester.
This “Jester” still has the tattoo to prove it.
This “Jester” is now being resuscitated.

I will, from now on, revive the “Jester” within me only for those I love and who believed in me. For the rest of you out there I will remain Marillionlb.
For the very few, you will eventually make the correlation.

  1. Is this a new script for a Jester’s tears or are you just reminiscing on your misplaced childhood?

    More hints are needed.

  2. The script could never be rewritten or changed, for I do no think there will ever be another “Fish”. More of the later I think.

    “Armalite, street lights, nightsights
    Searching the roofs for a sniper, a viper, a fighter
    Death in the shadows he’ll maim you, he’ll wound you, he’ll kill you
    For a long forgotten cause, on not so foreign shores
    Boys baptised in wars
    Morphine, chill scream, bad dream
    Serving as numbers on dogtags, flakrags, sandbags
    Your girl has married your best friend, loves end, poison pen
    Your flesh will always creep, tossing turning sleep
    The wounds that burn so deep…”

  5. @ Jester
    I have been a fan of Marillion since the war. At university jesters and Marillion posters were plastered all over my very narrow walls. I even have a jester’s tattooed on my body.
    My nickname on pages I use to host was always Jester.
    “The fool escaped from paradise will look over his shoulder and cry
    Sit and chew on daffodils and struggle to answer why?
    As you grow up and leave the playground
    Where you kissed your prince and found your frog
    Remember the jester that showed you tears, the script for tears
    So I’ll hold our peace forever when you wear your bridal gown
    In the silence of my shame the mute that sang the sirens’ song
    Has gone solo in the game, I’ve gone solo in the game
    But the game is over.”
