Laughing At a Funeral

He flung his arms in amusing laugh, At the passing funeral bier, Beside the herd of lily blossoms-- This stout little man, in his full air: ''What say...'', he asks with a chortle, ''And thus of laughter this man dies!?''-- Gave another big guffaw-- Tears filling his beady eyes. The birds chirped, and the dogs-- They followed-up rather slow; The deceased was laid in his cask, With mourning women, crying low.. He mused a moment at the sight he saw, Then burst-up in a loud 'Hee-haw'! ''Forgive me, but it's hard to take''. (His belly danced, as he spake) Slightly flushed,''now'', said he, ''I choke of laughter, do you see?? Tell me will I be dead next.....'' Then stopped to take a deepest gasp With some force, and a wasp Was sucked into that mouth and he Agonized with pain, stifled and red, Next we know, lay there dead.....

    He who laughs last, laughs best - so it is said. AAn unusual tale of strange behavior at a funeral and so well told!
