POEMS









It’s sometimes hard to squeeze a laugh

within a rhyming paragraph.

But given the right attitude,

stomas give us latitude.


Our tactics should be to tell jokes

to those non-stomatic folks.

So let us take a different path,

lighten up and try to laugh.


Catastrophes may come and go,

so from them let some humour flow.

Don’t let the traumas get you down,

put on a smile and not a frown.


There often is a funny side

to anything you can deride.

And as a stoma’s visible,

it’s easy to be risible.


So take the anatomical

to make the stoma comical.

Some comics use a red, red nose,

I wear a stoma like a rose.


We surely can be humorous

with something so hilarious.

We know the mess can be quite vile,

but it can also bring a smile.


People can be incredulous

with things that seem ridiculous.

So I’m convinced that we could find,

humorous images for the mind.

 

For those of us who also care,

this is a way that we can share.

A way they can converse with us

without us making any fuss.
