Finding upside down smiles scattered among the audience

Richard tried to make a quick joke to lighten the mood

Only it didn’t work, and more people joined the unhappy camp

Couldn’t stand being put in one when she was young

Objecting to the degrading idea of facing the epitome of a box

Pause (an acrostic poem)
