Poems on Virtues 2

in praise of humor

so Job
was put to the
test this just and blameless
man disaster struck not once not
twice but

times he lost
his wealth loved ones friends and
wealth yet he persevered and he

his faith
unbending in
the midst of his sadness
and despair he battled on day

day a
serious man of
virtues of fortitude
gratitude fidelity and

for want
of humor a
risible virtue the
holy man sank into deep

armed with
humor he could
have grasped the absurd
in the morass of affliction
and said

“my body sores are many and really bad
but if yours are worse then you are dead”
