Humanity - Poem by Mark Murphy

Three cheers for all those who would kiss and make up!
Three cheers for Captain Ahab’s leg!
Three cheers for poetry that never gets a look in!
Three cheers for the blind hermit’s barometer!
Three cheers for John Merryck and all his awkwardness!
Three cheers for life’s little obstacles!
Three cheers for our ladies of the pantyhose!
Three cheers for utter nonsense!
Three cheers for the telephonist’s dilemma!
Three cheers for virtue!
Three cheers for ‘loophole theory’!
Three cheers for the void, in whose name we take to the drink!
Three cheers for utter drunkenness!
Three cheers for the glorious martyrdom!
Three cheers for the poet’s daughter in whose honor I close my eyes, etc.!
Three cheers for the pharmacist’s white coat!
Three cheers for all those who do not need three cheers!
Three cheers for all those who do!
Three cheers for the sake of having three cheers!
Three cheers most of all for you!
