Poem

Comedy Is Hard

I was working on my coffee

at the coffee shop and three

young ladies were sitting

nearby and I overheard

one of the ladies telling

her friends about how her father

knows Seinfeld (the comedian)

as well as other Hollywood

luminaries

and she said she was hanging

out with Seinfeld and her father

at their East Hampton home

but she was getting bored

and she could only think about

going to the bar and getting

drunk.

that could be an episode of

Seinfeld right there, but

after the hundredth rerun,

everything gets boring.

as a comedian once said

on his deathbed:

Dying is easy.

Comedy is hard.
