A quick quip
is the clever tongues whip.
How violent is a laugh
to demean or cut in half
The weaponry of comedy
is ssurely bloody scenery.
A laugh always comes at a price.
Someone must pay for a lovable play,
and humor is a tumor
malignant not benevolent.
The easiest ways are behind closed doors and backs.
"Hush now, they’ll hear our thoughts"
so queer, so clear, so close, but not dear.
close your ears, our words sharp as tacks.
