A-Z sketches in verse: Heckled for Humor

My Uncle Hector’s not much fun.
When he stops by, we hide and run.
Against the grain,
He raises Cain.
But when he laughs, he comes undone.

His wisecrack targets cannot fight.
He barbs the disadvantaged, slight.
But others laugh
On his behalf.
Perhaps they chuckle out of fright.

  1. Hi,
    Stopping by from Blogging A to Z. You have a cute blog. I don't read a lot of poetry any more but I'm enjoying the blogs that have chosen as a theme. Thanks for reminding me to read more poems!

  2. I think ol' Uncle Hector has been hitting the ol' hooch when no one is looking.
