What goes where and does what go there?
reminds of that ‘first base’ sketch
by the three stooges,
but you probably won’t remember them,
three funny men
from back when men were funny.

It’s about money today,
comedy, although we laugh takes
second place,
first place goes to the impresarios
and who knows what they are.

I like theatre
backstage
the shows and
kissing in the back rows
is not just for cinema.

Life is a good play
I saw it once
but forgot
then saw it quite recently
found it
decent really

but I never got what
goes where
although I sometimes
reached third base.
