A Silly Sonnet

A silly sonnet? Say it isn’t so!
Say slapstick’s sorry seed we ‘ll seldom sow
In such a sacred space, tho’ to and fro
Astride such the unseeing masses go!

Involve me not in such unseemly sort ~
Say I should scintillatingly comport
Myself societally, nor resort,
Because I’m so assigned, to simple sport!

How shall I shed sweet sunshine’s ~ (uh) ~ shininess
Shorn shins from sea to shining sea to bless
And steam girls till bikinis to undress
When set to slaving under such duress?

Still, wise ones say ~ nor can I disagree:
“Ser’iousness Is, but Silliness Shall Be!”
