Caring mode


A sense of good humour will help you in life

A smile or a wave will help to end strife

A frown will not help

Nor will a jeer

So always do try to smile and to cheer


The lockdown was crippling

It’s taken its toll

So many are jobless

So many on dole


Insecurity in life

Turns man mean and bad

Outwitting all others

Even their very own brothers


Riding a high horse

Intolerant of jest

These are the people

Who consider they’re the best


Taunting and jeering are really quite bad

Why can’t one be gracious even to a cad

Being rude and unkind will lead you nowhere

It’s high time one learnt to care and to share



Be gracious to others

Listen to their tale

A smile is a curve

That’s not been known to fail


Learn to be tolerant

To hear one and all

To respond to a plea

Or an urgent help call


Our patience is being tested

Things are at a head

Do not look at life

With fear and with dread


Lend out a hand

Reply to a post

Do not be proud

Do not try to boast


Life teaches us a lot

It’s up to us to learn

It pays to be good

And some brownie points earn


So shed that grim frown

It will lighten up your load

Try to be always

In the ‘happy, caring mode’
