Schadenfreude       [rubai]

Schadenfreude -- the friend of shame & shade

enjoys is sad delight in life's parade

the more the comic foibles gleam & glide

the brighter burns its sorry serenade


Occasioned by an opionion piece, "The Word You Dare Not Spell" (the latter involving ruminations on aspects of responses to the Kaavya Viswanathan affair)
