What Makes Me Laugh: A Rhyme with Laughing Session No.1

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.

The human race has one really effective weapon, and that's laughter.

-- Mark Twain

I laugh at happiness with an attached price

when people are buying their joy of living

just giving their misery expensive spice

then see it as their great achieving.


I laugh at every version of hypochondriac breed

brainwashed into their fragile health condition

wallowing in that constant ridiculous need

to see doctors and watch their nutrition.


I laugh when patriotism goes to a fanatic extent

losing nerves over things beyond their control

not seeing how foolishly their time is spent

as they've never changed anything at all.


Or I laugh at ignoramuses and world-fixers as well

who appear knowledgeable with so much to teach

while using teenage vocabulary, or can't even spell

among them here and there, those who will preach.


I laugh at politicians, those masters of deception

those grateful that every second a sucker is born

well, take me for one of liberated exceptions

that has grown above Santa and Unicorn.


And I laugh at myself among all other funny types

with all different reasons that are never enough

all of us in a marching parade with bag pipes

while God above is joining me in my laugh.
