Sense Of Humor - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I don't understand?
What's not to be believed?
You have never been told the truth...
And now you are seeking clarity?
How would you recognize it?
You have shown me no evidence.

I provided you the comfort of calling me a fool!
If I truthfully believed that...
I would not be here now staring in the face of one!
You may have made fun of me at my expense,
But I'm the one that's been laughing all this time.

I get it now.
You thought I was laughing 'with' you and the others,
Laughing at me?
I'm not sadistic.
I have a sense of humor myself.
