A good laugh can make our day.
Donna noticed a crane on the grounds
As she made her usual rounds
She liked to get some daily sun
And see what else was fun
We talked a bit during lunch
She knew a good one, I had a hunch
She said she'd been somewhat in awe
By the great big crane she saw
Oddly, a group of men working hard
Paid no attention to the bird in the yard
I said, "Folks come to Florida to see
Wildlife that we get to see for free."
Later, I asked Donna to describe the bird
For a poem, I wanted to use the right word
"What bird?" Her blue eyes were bemused
"The crane, the crane!" I was confused
"Well, this crane lifted a new AC unit to the roof"
"Oh, that kind of crane! What a goof!"
We laughed and laughed and laughed. .
