On funny verse

Your funny bone is plain to see
and tickles me with musely glee
oh, write for fun or fucks or tears
it all comes down to test of years
sometimes to shock is cause enough
to call your sullen reader's bluff
but when you give your reader humour
ideas can grow, much like a tumour.

Last few words: 
Inspired by Wesley's "A Triolet"

I am in awe of the change. Sting at the end--Martial's epigrams.

Honestly man, you can take some credit. When I insensitively and stupidly dismissed one of your poems and you had the courage to call me on it I had to take a deep look at myself and my motivations.

You may not be a substitute for my slutty muse, but you keep me honest.

cheers,
Jess
