#Maydays Prompt – Something Stupid


Today’s #maydays prompt time for a bit of humour.

His first night of stand-up

Should have been his first night of sit down

Not one joke reached his audience

Not a titter did he earn

The deathly silence was too much.

He tried harder with every joke

And that was his problem,

Trying hard was not the solution

Jokes are best told in control

The best joke on the night was him

And when asked by a loudmouth

Did he know the road to Sydney?

He replied in desperation YES!

The voice called back

Best take it pal!

    I feel bad for this guy. It’s difficult doing anything infront of a large crowd for many people. And the guy in the audience was being mean. Nice write Michael.

    He may not have been funny, but he was brave. No way would I stand up in front of a crowd like that–even if I didn’t have to tell jokes.
