Three Humors

Reviewing my journals, I came across an interesting entry from a few years ago. I had written a couple of stupid poems, that I thought were really funny, but when I shared them with Cathy, she was totally unimpressed.

So, I ended up writing another poem about the use of humor:

Three humors of the human heart
Interpret reality.

Humor inspired by heaven above,
Sustaining the soul
Abundant in love.

Humor devised of earthen clay,
Resulting in hollow
And shallow dismay.

Humor forged in hellish flames,
Exalting abasement,
Mired in shame.

O, which shall MY humor be?
