Choir of Crickets

Word of the Day Challenge: Hilarious


Franz von Stuck


When I tripped

when I fell

when I mispronounced a word

counted up the numbers wrong

Hilarious to everybody there


When I wore my hair wrong

chose the wrong clothes

drove the wrong car

saw the wrong movies, read the wrong books

it was oh so very hilarious to everybody there


Once I was right and

no one was there

to see it, to hear it,  to cry

Hey! That’s not hilarious

except for a choir of crickets who happily chirped hurrah.
