I read the following in a captioned column. I wonder what it means.

The mosque is too far from home, so let's do this / Let's make a weeping child laugh.

Well I have had a little problem finding this one. It seems it is a quote from Nida Fazli, poet (12 Oct 1938-2016)

I'm not so good on poetry, but to me it seems maybe the place to worship is too far to get to, so instead let's make a weeping child laugh because it's the moral thing to do. Have no idea if that was what was meant by the poet though.

Lorikeet:
Thank you.
About my style of posting a question at this site, should I change my ID because a pile of my questions so far has become too big?

I'm not sure what you think the problem is, but what you are doing seems fine to me.

Lorikeet:
Thank you for your advice. Let me continue the current style.
Once I wondered the current size of my questions piled up so far might have made it difficult for you to find my new question.

The ones I haven't read are marked, so it's not too hard to find them.
