Black Humor is Funny Too

Black humor is humor … true. A blitzkrieg of the King’s and pidgin English

upon a balkanized globe’s dialogues has been too often nightmarish!

After Greek, English is only the world’s second lingua franca. A rich vocabulary

and easy rhymes are at home in song … psalm … prose … or poetry.

The richest tongue (by word count) owes its extreme wealth to fortuitously heavy

borrowing from other tongues … and the quirks of His timing … uncanny.

And now the Islamic State taunts and haunts Twitter from the relative safety

of a cybernetic perch, high atop … the lofty tree … of precious liberty.

To wit: With more English-speaking Chinese than there are Americans probably,

there are more Chinese than American wits, knowing a twit, from a tweet.

Tweet is commonly understood, but twit? Twits are taunts. To twit is to titter

or taunt. Hmm; curiously, our host … is Twitter … not Tweeter.

Why Twitter and not Tweeter, albeit, an intriguing riddle, isn’t the point. It’s the truth

of black humor that makes black humor … bruise … and humor, too!

An Existential Riddle

An existential riddle: Spiritualities diverse aside, our common denominator really
is our humanity; not … surreally … any base … nationality.
So, in this surreal nonfiction … what is the common thread in the fabric
of His creation? Isn’t it … the totality … of His creation … cosmic?

Diverse spiritualities aside, the quintessence of unfathomability
is His purpose and its corollary … that is … our purpose.
But were we to abnegate our nationalities and exalt our humanity,
wouldn’t we … accomplish … His purpose?

Tweets and Twits (II)

English is only the world’s second lingua franca. A rich vocabulary and easy
rhymes are at home in song … psalm … prose … or poetry.

The richest tongue (by word count) owes its extreme wealth due to heavy
borrowing from other tongues and the quirks of His timing … uncanny.

To wit: There are more English-speaking Chinese than Americans; more Chinese
wits than Americans … perhaps … know a twit … from a tweet.

Tweet is commonly understood … but twit? Twits are taunts. To twit is to titter
or taunt. Hmm. Curiously, a popular host is … Twitter … not Tweeter.

Why Twitter and not Tweeter, albeit, an intriguing riddle, isn’t the point. Rather,
it’s just that more people, than bluebirds, are tweeting … on Twitter.

Titters and taunts are tweeted and re-tweeted on Twitter, sometimes, mean-spiritedly;
better to be a bubbler … if more … good-naturedly.
