A joker
cracks jokes

A nature
freak
extols
the beauty
of the golden
daffodil.

A foreigner
raves
about
the orchid
exotica

A tourist
fantasizes
waving palms
white sands
glassy seas.

The lonely heart
romanticizes
the glorious
sunset
and silvery moon.

My verses
not intended
as jokes
provoking
merriment
raise issues
stimulating
second thoughts.
