The Funny Man

the funny man stands

mic in hand

and stares at his watch.

he’s three minutes in

and can’t even begin

to remember his next joke.

his hands start to sweat

and he begins to regret

signing up for this open mic.

as his dream slowly dies

he begins to realize

a forgotten little piece of advice,

happiness is the key to life.

smiled, and with this rejuvenation

he regained his reputation

and killed it that night in the city basement.
