No irony for us

As in that old Checkov story,
We like the hammer man to

Stand at a happy door to tap,
Just to remind a man inside

Of the worse times to strike,
Of calamities to befall later.

But with no hammer to tap ,
Happiness is uninterrupted.

And we are rather unhappy,
Deprived of delicious irony.
