Bit Part

The station break was really through
when jokes made sense on MASH,
I learned the code and duly threw
my feelings in a stash—
deep channels of maturity
rewrote the pull of gravity.

Throughout the sitcom’s middling run
I’ve tried to stay on-cue
and downplay scenes that weren’t too fun
with antics tried and true;
the audience, I have no doubt,
won’t cry when I am written out.
