Making jokes is an easy way to pass the time,
Once everyone is up to it,
And the joke can be appreciated.
When it is really a prank of some sort,
Then it involves disrespect for the feelings of others,
And an unappreciation for their lack of involvement.
It is never wise to make jokes about things,
That could easily be true,
For jokes are close cousins with lies,
And you can face the possibility,
That when your joke turns out to be the truth,
Then no one will know it to be so,
And you may suffer the consequence instead.
You wonder who will be laughing then.
