With’ Or ‘At’

Explaining all the titters away,

the ones that were gathered together that day;

well, the news reports said with no small delight

that amusement was caused, an unusual sight.

Not so, he stated, he was not a joke;

no figure that they with ridicule did poke.

No, the press got it wrong, they were not laughing ‘at’,

they were laughing ‘with’ and so go think on that.

Only those laughing can know the real deal

and we will not hear that, I honestly feel.

So ‘with’ or ‘at’ is still not agreed,

depends which point of view that you read.

So think of a circus, and that big clown;

or is this some king that is wearing a crown?
