Some Kind of Joke – Written March 2010 (Aged 35)

Some Kind of Joke

was it some kind of joke
if so,
it was not funny
and we did not laugh
maybe you would like to explain
because the punchline was delivered
with a punch of pain

sweetie,
you have gone too far
we are not cleaning up your milk
you spilt every drop
if we all keep cleaning it up
then it will never stop
sweetie,
you have gone too far
this time it means too little
and the joke, it has become too brittle




James Garratt – March 2010
