How'd i fail to see this little bed time tale was funny?
I could cry to think of all the irony I've missed!
What an unusual twist
Right at the end of it

Who could see that this pathetic scene would be
So funny
Once you strain to find the grain of humor
Life double crosses with style
Forcing you into a smile
So it can kick you in the teeth

Just desserts
We can all laugh till it hurts
At my expense
I'm accustomed to working on "spec"
I always pick up the check

I think it's funny
Who could top or make this comic op'ra more
You could weave in some deceit to even up the

You'd have us all on the floor
That would be roaringly funny
Sad enough my life's a joke that suffers in the telling
Just another hoary chestnut from the bottom drawer
I've heard so often before
That i can't laugh anymore

Addendum and apology

I do appreciate the emails and notes and whatnot about my last post. But I don't want it to seem like I was fishing for them. It was just something I needed to get off my chest. Hense the lack of comments on it. Sorry about that.
