There's a classic joke that everyone's heard,
"A horse walks into a bar..."
My love for that joke might seem absurd,
and I guess I take it too far.
I use it to break that awkward quiet,
and am met with groans, not a laugh.
When I need to check my mic, I'll try it,
but it always ends up a gaffe.
The joke is funny, and I think it's gold,
but my friends think it's a disgrace.
But that timeless punchline never gets old.
"The barman asks, 'Why the long face?'"
