Being grounded is no fun…

Unless you make poetry out of it.

Sometimes I have a hard time writing a joke. Especially if it’s part of a longer story. I not only have to convey a new idea that progresses the narrative, but I have to make it funny.

I had a hard time with this one, for sure. I wanted to show that Luna got in trouble for bad behavior at school, but I didn’t have a punchline. I decided to entertain with poetry. Almost like a song was being sung.

To me, this poem reads as if Jack and Luna are singing that old winter song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.

Ok it’s not exactly like that, but it’s the same idea.
