You Slay Me!

You Slay Me!

You Slay Me!

Slaughter and laughter are very close friends,
just take off the โ€œSโ€ from one of the ends.
There is only one, so it shouldnโ€™t be hard,
even for you, such an experienced bard.

Their meaningsโ€”diverse, as night is to day,
just take off that โ€œSโ€ then throw it away.
Slaughter becomes laughter; and though they donโ€™t rhyme
youโ€™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 โ€˜em both, but just one I like best.
itโ€™s the one that means fun when removing the โ€œsโ€.
