Jest for Pun

The expert thief avoids the authorities
Because he is a master of elusion.
A playwright's lines seem vaguely familiar
Since he is a master of allusion.
The brewer's apprentice didn't strain the hops,
So he submitted a rough draught.
The inn's rooms were too well-ventilated,
So the guests slept through a rough draft.
The Chinese moralist extols civic virtue:
He prefers a state of Confucian.
The hemophiliac bruises easily--
He is often in a state of contusion.

(I had a long an boring group meeting;
This helps to maintain my detention span).
