The Best Medicine


The Best Medicine

Humour heals better than hate.
You can confront hate with reason
but humour is best
if unreason prevails,
if more hate is your only return.

You can wind up the anti,
add hate to the hate,
add aggression to aggression,
madness to madness.
But he'll like humour less.

Anyway it's more fun.
