Raucous gales of laughter|
do not mean you're going crazy,
though your reasons may be 'iffy'
and your motives seem quite hazy.
Laughter for no reason obvious
could lift the spirits of a boulder.
Better than crying in your beer
or blubbering all over my shoulder.
'Laugh and the world laughs with you,
cry and you cry alone'
This well-worn cliched epithet
places sadness in a no-go zone.
So, if I seem quite crazy,
join me in the laughter.
Who cares what others think of you
and you'll feel much better...after!
