B: Xxxvi: Humour - Poem by Douglas Scotney

To some it seems,
When talking out of misery,
You'd mean more than what you're saying.

There could be a laugh in that.

Living in that misery
Would by no means be a joke.
I'd say more than what I meant,

And some would find that funny.

For my money
This is another case
Of content being content
and content being content.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

'L'Heautontimoroumenos.' No.90 in Poemhunter. I think it is pronounced 'Lay oat-on Timor oomaynous'
see my 'Emma's Dell' for first instance of 'content is content'.
