Humoresque


Itís generally conceded
That a sense of humorís needed
To escape from societal insanities

We donít need the avarice and greed that seem to fuel us
Nor the smallness of the minds of those who rule us
Who keep us bordered on the fringe of inhumanity

When possible, we can try to block them out
With fun and things to laugh and joke about
Providing us at least a momentary hiccup

Laughterís most essential for relieving
The heart-aches of societal deceiving
Thereís nothing better than good humor for a pick-up

Some times a joke , a sense of humor. Can disarm the beast , a friend of mine was stopde , by a cop. To expliane why she was where she was. He was not emprest by the answers she gave. So he had her empty her bag. Out witch came a carrot. The cop lookde and could not stop him self from laughing. Yes my friend had a carrot , and was not afraid to eat it! But some times all we have to get back at those who are set above us , who legerly thief from us , hold us down.

Hear, hear. There can be too much superficiality in some social situations. But then nothing beats the chuckles with true friends when discussing said situations! C

Satire , as British as roast beef , way back when the Georgians sat on the throne , a time when it was shown the emprer wore no cloths , the time freed humeriest to take the piss out of kings and politician's , houmer is some times the last form of defence and attack of those who suppress , oppress , long live the mickey taker's, those who sendup put down those who deserve it so .
Thanks Stan , keep it coming.

The day I stop seeing humour in life, is the day I call it quits. Laugh and say what the hell! :) x

Much of this business must be a joke! Maybe of the grin and bear it genre! :-)
Lets all keep on smiling, Stan.

the sound of a nail being hit on the head is evident here-
and once this blessed state is acheived we can truly look around us.
