Towers of ivory
Towers of marble
Towers of glass to see through and mock and jeer at the people outside
But people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stone
Towers of privilege
That obscure all reason and logic
Because you shut yourself away a long time ago
Comedy is so subjective.
Some people think British people aren’t funny, which is ridiculous. We just go about it in a less obvious way. It’s hard to tell the difference between cynicism, self-deprecation and jokes that make you cringe…and experiences and words that genuinely hurt.
