The Best Medicine

Humour touches the essence of humanity.
As the world grows dreary, one simple joke,
action, or musing can bring the sun back
before those smiling. So bright that words sting

and the belly aches. Tears shed (happy
one’s, I promise). All can be united by
the simple action of experiencing the joy

that has been given, and releasing
these blessings back into the world
for others to grasp, and send through

their limbs. A calming, brightening ritual,
no matter the socially constructed divisions.

All can smile hard with one another.
