Funny, 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
Funny, Who could see that this pathetic scene would be So funny Once you strain to find the grain of humor Underneath 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 Compelling You could weave in some deceit to even up the Score
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

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.
