You Slay Me!

You Slay Me!

You Slay Me!

Slaughter and laughter are very close friends,
just take off the β€œS” from one of the ends.
There is only one, so it shouldn’t be hard,
even for you, such an experienced bard.

Their meaningsβ€”diverse, as night is to day,
just take off that β€œS” then throw it away.
Slaughter becomes laughter; and though they don’t rhyme
you’ll thrill with a kill and a bloody good time.

Slaughter and laughter are closely related
one is enjoyed while the other word, hated.
I like β€˜em both, but just one I like best.
it’s the one that means fun when removing the β€œs”.
