A Real Groaner

I stood in line to get some punch.
I wanted some to drink with lunch.
The line was long. The line was slow.
It seemed to take an hour or so.
At last I got up to the front.
The serving lady gave a grunt
and punched me squarely on the nose,
which made me groan. That’s how it goes.
I shook my head. I should have known…
A punchline sure can make you groan.
