I Used To Be Funny.


I had a quick wit and a snarky comeback for most anything.

Everything was stupid and subject to my ridicule.

The world hasn't changed much.

I have.

I tried working with it.

I tried getting along.

But what I used to find stupid and funny.

Is now funny and sad.

I would get angry

At children dying at the hands of their parents.

Of people crushed in road rage.

Of the rich and powerful floutinng every rule.

And not seeing retribution.

But it is all in vain.

And I know it.

It's not funny anymore.

And nothing I say will make much difference.

I guess I'll shut up.

You're welcome.

  1. Mel Brooks once said something along the lines of, "Humor is when you fall down a man hole and die. Tragedy is when I get a paper cut.."

    I understand that less and less, the older I get.
