Dad Jokes

I know
exactly
what a dad joke is
but can never
think of an example
when I need one

Perhaps dad jokes
are imbued with
mystic power
and can only
be accessed
by actual dads

It seems
unfair
that moms don’t
get their own bad jokes
but are expected
to disapprove of fun

And what
about aunts?
Why can’t aunts
tell dad jokes?
Why are they never
called aunt jokes?

I protest
the fundamental
mysterious workings
of the common dad joke
probably because I’m procrastinating
on eminently more important things
