Treasure Island

Walterrean Salley

(Savannah, Ga)

Laughter Is infectious

Laughter is infectious:
It is a joyful sound
That, once it starts ringing,
Passes all around.

Laughter is infectious:
Some folks have no clue
As to what another’s laughter
Could do unto you.

Laughter is infectious:
You can get it on a whim,
But chances of it harming
Are very—very slim.
