14 Line Max. Funny Poem No. 3 by Graeme Sandford
Define: ‘funny’. An egg on a head; crack the shell
Runny! The yokes on you, you say, well…
Not all of us are born comedians, or clowns,
And sometime when the joke is upon us, frowns
Issue from our facial muscles, not happy-go-lucky
Smiles, as we laugh at a prank that is mucky… yucky!
And talking of jokes (which we were) a man walked into a bar
‘Ouch!’ he cried – it was an iron one – and you saw that punch-line from afar.
Slapstick: A whacking paddle to make a comedy sound
Also: visual gags and pratfalls; that are crude, but harmless ‘in the round’.
And there are some ‘funny’ jokes that are not worth the telling;
Like the ‘Purple Man’ who makes us all feel like yelling:
‘Give it a rest! I’ve heard it before! Once more and I’ll go magental!’
Which is a joke in itself; and needs no guidance parental.
