My Funny Poem

I wanted to write a funny
Poem, so I closed my eyes
To meditate. My mind saw
Bloated bodies floating in
Murky rivers, teens with
Empty cavities where their
Chests should be, and metal
Projectiles lodged in skulls.
I tried to write a funny poem,
But this one came out instead.
I’m sure someone is laughing.
