A Merry Heart Does Good Like a Medicine. Proverbs 17:22
Yes, I am a jester
and sometimes play the fool,
with humour I will pester,
and I know that I am cool.
I know that life is tragic
and can be quite a trial,
but still, I think there's magic
in bringing out a smile.

and taking knowledge from Eve's hand
was the serpent's fatal kiss.
It's a fallen world, but needn't mope;
God bids us laugh, to help us cope.
