Write a praise poem
A sense of humor is vital,
better than sitting idle.
Remember, in blackest mood
the name ‘pickle’ denotes a funny food.
When I think of a cousin I have lost
I see her laughing at a political boss.
She would say the most outrageous things.
If people didn’t get her, it added zing.
Now in midst of an awful disease
create your own fun if quarantined.
I saw a woman make a mask from a bra,
made people laugh from near to far.
And so I praise those who can laugh
including myself, though I might be daft.
Think of something you find funny,
it doesn’t cost you any money.
