What are your poems? It all depends on that but for say 'Basking Shark', I would comment on the shark rising from the loch:
"a thing that happened once, too often, to me"
or for 'Assisi', the dwarf has the "advantage of not being dead yet" with the humour surrounding to the ephemeral nature of the observation.
But really there's loads of examples on this, just make sure you know how to answer the question

I think they'll be a bit trickier to extract humour from but see if you can but the right spin on humour as a coping mechanism employed by the persona such as the image of the vampire (can't remember the exact quote ) in Visiting Hour.
I think I mentioned Assisi in my first post, sorry I won't be much help with Memorial as it wasn't one I looked at in a lot of depth for exams, but if you need any more I would check out a few blogs by english teachers such as Mrs Kirkwood
