Contagion - Poem by Aufie Zophy

The disease of sour face
has a wonderful medicine:
it is the contagious smile.
Let's give one to many
and sour face disease may fade.

The disease of looking away
has a wonderful remedy:
it is the contagious loving look.
Let us give one to many
and this disease will fade away

And there is one super drug
for still many more diseases:
it is the contagious random kind act.
Let us give one to many
and a healthy society may evolve

Topic(s) of this poem: kindness, love, smile
