The Slap

(28 March 2022)

Black velvety tunics,

At a gang-bang held for eunuchs,

When a joke that tasted sour

Brought a show of feeble power

And the man who did disparage

Proved the sham that was his marriage.

He laughed, then quivered at the cold

Of his woman’s eyes, and so he rolled

On stage and did lash out;

Returning to his seat, to shout.

Such doglike devotion

Gives the world a certain notion;

Laud a neuter to the nation

Or fix degrees of separation?


[We’d rather read Chris Tsiolkas.]

    What if Will Smith slapped Chris Rock and he fell backwards into the wires that control the internet, and then the internet went down across the world and we missed Putin saying he'd end the war if he got 100 likes on Twitter but no one could like the post? Would you be laughing?
