The number of jokes about the US election
is more than the number of people now scared for their lives.
But jokes aren’t a bad thing,
Especially if elections could be won
by measuring laughter.
Pressure isn’t a bad thing
when it’s 120/80.
When you squeeze someone’s hand
All your life flows into them,
through the rivers bursting on your hand,
the entire 120/80.
Sometimes you need
jokes and pressure,
like the last time you tried
to communicate with someone,
and you tried to laugh,
but ended up coughing together.
