Humoresque - Poem by Stanley Cooper

It’s generally conceded
That a sense of humor’s needed
To escape from societal insanities

We don’t 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

Laughter’s most essential for relieving
The heart-aches of societal deceiving
There’s nothing better than good humor for a pick-up
