You want me to write something so you can laugh
I will try, but it's an art or a craft
How am I to make you giggle?
Does it have to be with rhyme or a riddle?
Your poetry tends to be dark
Will mine even be able to hit the mark.
Will this laugh I give come from the belly?
If it does then I must write real silly
You call yourself "A Poet Destroyer"
But I tend to think you're just a voyeur
You peek inside my head through my words
Sometimes me thinks what I write's for the birds
So I will try my hardest today
To make you laugh, in my own way.
I hope I get just a smile or a grin
Because this contest is something to win.
