Ailments, Purim Cures 'Em

Ailments? Purim Cures 'Em! Down 'N the Dumps? Simcha smoothes most lumps, What's Simcha? Briefly, Shared Joy, As more 'tis shared, less there is to annoy! Trade a warm feeling, return a smile, Rids everyone of at least some bile. Together, we overcome trouble, Synergy! Life expanded, unconfined by the bubble! Purim practices include: Mishloach Manos; Friendly giving gifts of food, Booing Haman; Rejoicing in justice coming to a bad dude, Related in reading aloud the Megillah, a group "Thrillah", Purim Seuda; a common meal festively "Imbues Yah", Matanos Leveyonim; gifts to the needy do truly cure, Giving does more to the giver as to the poor! Adar, name of the month, a "Roller Coaster" journey, When Spring, time of green health inspires, "Arise from your gurney! " Assuming Disguises; In Adar, nothing is what it seems, 7th Adar, Moses born & died, joy & grief in reams, Even in Persia, Esther becomes Queen, a saving surprise, Ailments? In Purim lies a cure! Mirth & birth reprise!

Enjoyed this, Chaim! Perhaps you would enjoy my poem Havdalah. I was watching Fiddler on the Roof and noticed braided candles. Curious about them I found a beautiful youtube video about Havdalah which is included with my poem. Blessings!
