Lost Humor

A sense of humor

Have you seen my sense of humor
seems I've lost it
along the way

The folks around here said
they saw it just the other day
ah but then it is known to
often go astray

I've lost my sense of humor
somewhere along the way
some say I never had one
but then there was the day

If you see my sense of humor
please send it on it's way
and tell it to bring some friends
to banter and to play

I think you are on to something. Give your sense of humor more shape- is it human, male or female, an animal, a circus clown...tell us what to look for, what color it is, what it sounds like, where it likes to hide. Then we can tell you if we've seen it...and that would fill the poem with images, fun images, in what is a ultimately a serious subject. Laughter is the great expression of joy and happiness, and you need a sense of humor to be complete, to be human, to be happy, Explore more your subject through imagery.
You have a great idea here...keep at it.
My take.

than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

that philosopher with a sense of humor. Yep, George Carlin. I have yet to find his female 'is alike'.
I suppose you would need to watch and listen to a lot of G.C. though lol
Eumo is correct you are onto something. Don't be afraid to be bad as a polite clown may not be so funny unless you are entertaining kids about which there are none here on Neo.
I'm a clown without a red nose
Lost my humor long ago
So I'm telling you here
This poem blows
Everyone knows

I'm a girl without a curl
Except my musty toes
Nails with a spin
Will tear your skin
Again it ain't funny
I'm no cute little
Bare ass'd bunny
Honey
Lmao

Ya gotta be a little bad for the greater good lol

Anyhow it is a great idea and best of luck with it

OR
you could try a Limerick
hahaha

Tried, anyhow :~)

all say my humor is very brief
short lived yet they smile
Buddha's way
your's is good enough by the way
no need to go astray
to find another way
laugh at yourself I say
enjoy your own humor today

thank you for stopping by

this is a somewhat sad poem. I was told that circus clowns are the saddest of all performers. Thanks for the read.

with Eumy. I think it would help to know what it looks like, so that we might identify it properly. Try something like:

My sense of humor has a bent
for funny, little looks
I wonder where it went
It has a smile that crooks

Blue eyes, I think it has
but, I'm not really sure
I think that they may spaz
But laughter is a cure

I found this by the title

I wasn't disappointed, I believe we all feel a bit like this at the moment. Although I could only speak for myself...
It's a back to the future poem

Thank you...Teddy
