The Joke

After all was said and done

There was more to be said, for fun

Not to be outdone tonight, or ever again

I bought the world’s funniest joke from The Joke Man

I found him on line and he takes your credit card

He warns you right away that the people who hear your joke may die from laughing too hard

So, I took out life insurance on everybody who would be there there

I was going to collect big time and I didn’t care

So, I told my joke and had to flee

The guy on the sofa threw a heavy pillow at me.

Nobody laughed. Nobody smiled.

I ran out the door. I was beguiled.
