Stop me if you’ve heard this one

When I was a kid
I told jokes
When my old man said I should.
I recited jokes
About a woman on the rag
An amputee and her pimp
And two priest in a cab.
I said fuck
And bitch
And cunt.
Everyone laughed
And I felt like a man.
But now that I am a man
I can see
That the joke
Was neither
The priest
The woman
Nor
The amputee
Instead
I find
What a child
Could never see
That all this time
The joke was me.
