Clown, or: Entertainer

A sijo

Must people be entertaining \ in order to be our friends
or at least in order to become \ our friends when we meet them?
I could pen some boring poetry \ but I don't want to know.

The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

  1. I guess there has to be some spark to forge a connection. And perception depends on the individual. Even the most boring ones might tickle the fancy of someone. 🙂

      1. Dull people I would accept as pleasant company as not everybody is bright, exciting, or entertaining. Boring people I would take in limited dosages, like a sleeping pill.
