Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompt #491: Anecdote

Surely, He Jests

Josh Kidd,
having come from a long line
of laughingstocks,
spouted a one-liner every 10 seconds,
which induced gag reflexes
in his uninitiated audiences,
putting them in a bad humor.
The only antidote to his anecdotes
was to dull his monkeyshines
by giving him a shiner–
right in the kisser–
which not only made everything swell
but gave new meaning to the word
punchline.
