MISSED JOKE

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

Somehow
the joke never

seems to be got

 

Vain efforts

could ensue.

 

Or I could simply

leave well enough alone

and move along.

 

I’m tired 

of always having

to explain myself

 

and I’m almost certain

of failure anyway

Author's Notes/Comments: 

to leave well enough alone would be unpoetic
