Humor Me

by Steven Kent

“Republican says comment Garland should be executed was ‘facetious'”
The Guardian

Geez, everybody now is way too woke.
I simply said “Hey, let’s assassinate
The AG for his crimes against the State.”
It’s like you people just can’t take a joke!

And yes, because I’m sure you’ve heard the rumor,
I really claimed that Hitler is “the kind
Of leader we sure need today.” I find
(Again!) that no one gets my sense of humor.
