To Laugh Or Not To Laugh

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Laugh at me or laugh with me,
It's really up to you.
I prefer the latter,
It's the 'funner' thing to do!

Is it funny or is it not?
Depends on how you see.
But, a little bit of laughter
Can fill a room with glee!

Text someone an 'lol',
Or simply say 'haha!'
Either way, you'll make 'em smile
Instead of 'wah, wah, wah!'

So try a little laughter,
And do it right away!
It's sure to change your outlook,
And brighten up your day!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Entered in Desiree Birdseye's contest

    I think this is the first time that you ever commented on my poetry, but here is a comment, I really believe that laughter fills the heart with joy an being able to laugh is precious because it keeps you in better health, I believe that Our Lord has laughed too, all work and no play makes for a dull person, so keep your left chin up and keep writing you are a talent, witty and fun read, God bless
