NOW, THAT’S FUNNY – PROMPT #106

Did you hear the one about…

Stop me if you’ve heard this one…

Everyone loves or has heard a good joke or pun. Your mission this week is to draw on your sense of humor – use a punchline from your favorite joke as your inspiration, and then write that poem.

It could be something funny a friend or sibling or parent says that makes you smile. Whatever brings joy to your heart is fair game.

“These two guys walk into a poem…”

MARIE ELENA’S KNEE SLAPPER:

I Don’t Get It.

My dad used to say (as he’d smirk with delight)
“Don’t tell her a joke on a Saturday night –
Or you’ll be the cause of her serious gaffe when
Sunday in church, she is bustin’ up laughin’!”

WALT’S SIDE SPLITTER:

TWINS

Acting brothers
standing tall,
to fill a part
that was not small.
They came as two
to the casting call,
but if you’ve seen Juan,
you’ve seen Amal.”
