Not Funny This Time

‘Twas not funny this time.
1 night the scale tips 1 way, the next it tips the same.
But then it tips the other.
The corruption.
‘Twas not funny this time, & ’twas ne’er funny.
The flip-flops on the other foot this time.
¿Why so much change?
Much as every turtle whithers,
change only leads to exchange.
Jarring.
That’s why we need to put a lid on it on a dime—
so it’ll be funny on time.

Prompt:

Flip-flops, Jar, Satire
