Father's Day Poem #1

fathers day poem # 1      

if you have to explain a joke it’s no
longer funny when I tell this one I
draw blanks but when I was a kid the
elopement-ladder-to-the-girl’s-window  
was as common a cartoon site as is the
perennial desert-island-with-palm-tree  
my friend says her dad really meant it
though when he told her and her six
sisters he’d buy them each a ladder and
tape a hundred bucks onto each rung if
they used it. . . . what? no laughter yet?
