Last Laugh


you may consider it the
last laugh – if such-like
jokes are droll – afterall
they ARE fleas. For sure
sad and lonely orphans
of fact and in an obtuse
way of thinking perhaps
the true victims 


their ‘beneath-the-desk’
orphanage is where their
(late) benefactor slept –
they creep forth seeking
his munificent largesse
encounter tasteless me
