Old Jokes

Standard

maggie“Goin’ fishin?” (yuck-yuck-yuck)
“Is it trout season?” (had-har-har)

I’ve heard them all
When I walk the dog
And she carries her fish

I smile
At the old jokes
And keep walking

I have my tired lines, too.

Well —
It’s a deep subject

Can’t find something? —
It’s always the last place you look

Funny to the teller
Not the hearer
As evidenced by
My children’s groans.

But I cast them out
Hoping to catch a smile
From someone else
