Good Humor

A poem by Beverly Stock.

Use good humor please,

The more that is said,

Our days fill with ease,

And not fill with dread.


Words are just words,

With a smile or with a scowl.

Giggle overheard,

Nice words or some foul.


Perchance take a look,

Inciting some glee,

In most humor books,

Five types will there be:


Word Play will be first,

To us, that’s just puns.

Some words kind or cursed,

Word puns are for fun.


Then Caricature next,

Exaggerations,

With insults in text,

Comparison-fun.


Blunders are wonders

Incorrect decrees,

Words filtered under,

Language artistry.


Malapropisms

Like right and then write,

Artistry risen,

Doubly contrite.


Wit is a device

Where hoaxes abound,

Repartee is nice,

And humor is found.


Last of all, Nonsense,

When we double talk,

Pretense influenced,

Humor’s defrocked.
