Practical Jokes And Jokers

Every life should have laughter,
at least one dose a day,
and everyone should be able to laugh
at themselves in some way.
I feel sad for all those
whom can't raise a smile,
and there are many I am afraid.

I am a practical joker
and I have my rules.
Rule one: Is no one should
get physically injured an anyway.
A dent in one's pride
or a little embarrassment
never hurt anyone at all.
Rule two: Only practical joke
those who can do one back to you
and don't take offence.

In my time I have played
many on my friends,
from invisible records to wombles,
toy computers to mermaids.
But always the joke
is my way of saying,
I happen to like you.
You never joke with your enemies
or persons who will take it the wrong way.

I like to bring a smile to everyone I meet.
Tears of laughter are my forte,
not the red eyes of hurt.
My jokes are a reward
of my friendship
and my outstretched caring hand
to help bring a smile a day.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
