Laughter lightens the load
Laughter creates pearls from perils
Laughter sends hundres of hope-rays
into the hearts of others
Laughter peeks out from behind the clouds
to say "Ah-ha, I told you so."
Laughter defeats gloom while delighting
in gentle gaiety
Laughter opens the door to contemplation
Laughter focuses on our foibes
and keeps us humble
Laughter is the wise man's answer
Laughter adds needed spice to the bland
Laughter is relief to the decent man and
ridicule to the despot
Laughter is oil for the worn and weary soul.
