Laughing at Funerals

I have a problem......ok....I take that back, I do not have A problem. I have A LOT of problems, but I will only be talking about one of them today.
That is the fact that I have a tendency to find poems funny which are not intended to be so. On the forum I belong to, often times I will read a poem, intended to be an expression of anger or sadness or otherwise dark, and it will just make me chuckle.
Now I do not mean that as cold-heartedly as it sounds. I do not go around laughing at the pain of others even I am not THAT bad (yet)
But just the way the poem in general is written, the tone of it, or the use of imagery and metaphors, or wording or whatever, will appeal to my dark and twisted sense of humor, so though it is not intended I will be amused.
I couple of times I will be like, I could not help but to find that amusing it really made me chuckle.
And then of course they will tell me they were not trying to be funny and it is not supposed to be amusing.
So I am like, yes I know, don't mind me, I just have a messed up sense of humor about things.
There was this new poem posted today that I read, and the person who commented before me, was talking about how angry the poem was, but when I read it, I just thought it was hysterical I did not get anger.
But then the person who wrote it said they were prompted to write it out of anger toward the person the poem was about.
And then there was another poem posted in the Sadness category but when I read it, I found it amusing.
