“You’re a joker”, she said

“You’re a joker”, she said,
Doubling over in laughter.
“If you didn’t laugh
You would cry”
Said I.

And after
I felt proud
That I can still engage
With a girl, half my age
And make her laugh Outloud.

I hear Eliot’s footman snicker.
The stage
Lights flicker
‘Ere the curtain does fall
Covering all.
