The Way of the Farce
There is grand cosmic Jest that unites all life forms in a common disunity. It is a field of contradiction that energizes and misguides all existence. I call it the Farce.
The Farce has a Delight side, and a Dork side. The Delight side is peaceful; it is just and wise and happy, but alas, it is sad, so sad. The Delight side of the Farce is the Blues. Sing it!
But beware the Dork side of the Farce! It is quicker, easier, more seductive than the Delight side, but not stronger. Sneer is a path to the Dork side. Sneer leads to clangor; clangor leads to prate; and prate leads to puffery.
Once you start down the Dork path, forever will it dominate your comedy, until you find the courage to unite Dork with Delight. In truth the two are one; for that is the way of the Farce.
