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-
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.
