I read the news, it is mostly grim
I read the funny papers, they make me smile
I think you take these poems too seriously
I am just trying to entertain you for a while
Just trying to survive another day
Just trying to race the rat races
These words come to my fingers just as naturally
As a smile comes to normal people’s faces
Were you entertained today?
Did we make you pause and think?
Or did you just say as you looked away
Seriously, this poem began to stink
