The Set Up

I see no humor

in all this comedy,

jokes falling flat

on the dead.

Such great material,

timing,

delivery!

Too bad the audience

is all catatonics,

suicides,

and Juggalos;

nothing funny here.

Not even a tragedy.

I could crash a truck

into a hospital

and get more laughs

from the gas.

I don’t even ask.

It’s all insane.

Your dreary face,

your hateful murmurs.

Such a nice day!

What a waste,

to get away with murder.

I’m not laughing with you.

No,

you’re not laughing anymore.
