Laughter - Poem by van wood
Copyright © 1995 Van Wood
What medicine can you take that will make your belly shake and is guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes?
What is it that makes men act like little boys again and forget about their dignified disguise?
There’s a simple description for this fast-acting prescription and its side effect are what you are after.
Not a liquid, not a pill, but the next time you feel ill,
Try a double dose of good, old-fashion laughter.
Now, let me further explain that laughter often can bring pain;
Some folks have even been known to need stitches
Though sometimes you cough and gasp, not to worry…it won’t last
Though it’s free, it’s one of life’s great riches.
So, the next time you feel pain, before you mumble and complain
Try the remedy that all the world is after.
Twice a day after meals, how much better you will feel!
With a double dose of Good Old Fashion Laughter.
