Due To Worry - Poem by Francis Duggan

There is truth in the saying laughing his or her cares away
A good antidote to stress in a few good laughs a day
Of any worry in your life you are better off without
The more you do worry the more you have to worry about
Due to worry related illnesses many have died
In cancer and heart attacks and sometimes suicide
The worry free people quite lucky indeed
Though to say the least they do seem a rare breed
Of truly happy people i do only know of a few
On this i am not saying anything that is new
People allergic to worry of happiness never know
One small worry to a bigger one does grow
An antidote to worry in a few good laughs a day
So lucky are those who can laugh their cares away.
