The Unlikely Joke

back in the days of vaudeville
which was way before my time
men joked about a lady’s ankle
it was really too risqué
but now they tell much dirtier jokes
they joke about women’s breasts
well we are so much more modern now
and of course now it seems OK.

but is it I ask? is it alright?
to crack these smutty jokes
about the half of the population
who’ve struggled to shed their yokes.

a joke should be a good story
it should make you laugh out loud
is there a comic who doesn’t insult?
he’d surely stand out in a crowd.

sadly I’m not too sure of this
it’s quite a pity in a way
for I really would look forward
to hearing that joke some day.
