Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

Comedians, those unsung heroes deserving every prize

deserving medals for victories against human crap

for turning a gloomy hell on earth into a paradise

and exposing cultural sickness as a trap.

Comedians are healers outdoing any shrink

laughter being medicine only love can match

and it doesn't matter what anybody may think

they are out of our league, spirits hard to catch.

Above everything else, they are here to remind us

how we can't generate laughter unless provoked

we need others' talents to somehow unwind us

so that emotions of fun and joy can be evoked.

Humor is a privilege of our all human race

one which we just cannot appreciate enough

for with no sense of humor we are a shrink's case

merely viewing life as problematic, painful, and tough.

As babies we laughed when nothing was funny

proving that joyfulness was inherent to us all

but it was before we learned about money

now comedians giving that partial recall.
