Haiku: Narm

Scene goes for drama
But winds up funny instead
Why am I laughing?

Sophisticated
Academics refer to
This thing as bathos.

They are eating her!
And then they are going to
eat me! OH MY GOOOOOOOD!
—Slouch

Falls flat of solemn,
Due to overt hamminess.
Makes you laugh, instead.

What're you doing?
Stop laughing at this, dammit!
This is SERIOUS!!

"What?" "My arm is numb.
Numb arm. Numb arm. N'arm. Narm!" And
You just named a trope.
