Short shrift and plant label jokes

You say it’s all about the last laugh

the jokes found on ice cream sticks

like your sense of humour your stuck in the past

this tales worn really thin

like the biscuit wrappers

That are thrown in the bin.

This sweet tooth craving

the place you hide in

that flightless bird

your wrecked nerves

the same problems recurring

the biscuits you dunk in

That pot that you  keep stirring

keep that kettle on the stove

A shoulder to cry on

that’s short shrift
