No, I Didn’t Hear That One

knock knock
I don’t care who walks into a bar
or who’s there
or how many so-and-so chickens
                      it takes
to screw in a lightbulb
or what the lawyer said
to his shoe or what religion
the shoe was
                      I’m not waiting
I’m not waiting who
for the punchline
of that joke you’re supposed to tell
                      all dirty
and when a phone rings in the bar
& is Jacques Strappe there?
           I’m crossing the road

and you shouldn’t have to ask me why
