I’ve never laughed so much – I almost cried.
This standout, standup mistress of the arts
Tells jokes about her privates and her farts.
Upon such clever wit the film relied.
It helped to cover up the darker side;
What was it now? – was it….infanticide?
I can’t remember all those little parts;
From memory something or someone died.

In any case ‘twas fun – no one was hurt;
Well – all except the one mentioned before,
And there was not a hint of blood and gore;
The humour never rose above the dirt,
And yet the unintended theme was clear:
We joke about the things we truly fear.

It’s Obviously a Child
