week 177 ~ a querulous quatrain

with 14 comments

a querulous quatrain
or sarcastic sonnet
with rambunctious refrain
isn’t meant to cause pain
but perhaps to upset

a querulous quatrain
though it tries to maintain
anonymity yet
with rambunctious refrain
implies more don’t explain
it and they won’t forget

a querulous quatrain
punching holes in some vain
immortality set
with rambunctious refrain
cheerfully douses plain
truth with rueful regret
a querulous quatrain
with rambunctious refrain

Humor is in the eye, or ear, of the beholder. Is this picture funny? I think so, but you might just think it’s dumb. Is a comedian, movie, book funny?– well, it depends. I was happy when I could finally make a joke in Portuguese (not tell a joke, just make a humorous comment in conversation) because it indicated that I was getting into the Rio mindset. We love people who share our sense of humor, and it’s disconcerting to be the only one laughing out loud in a theater. Our sense of humor guides us through dark times too, when laughing at our foibles is often the best way to recover and move on. So have yourself a laugh today, preferably at something you weren’t expecting to be funny. But don’t spend time trying to figure out my pic. Humor is an instinct– if it doesn’t snatch a laugh at first glance it’s not going to.
