Best Medicine

If laughter's the best medicine
I think I've had an overdose
It's coursing through my body
From my head down to my toes

I'm worried about my Ass
They say you can laugh it off
I'm building up pressure
Like a giant Molotov

I am taken to the funny farm
They think I've gone nuts
I started seeing animals
Walking around without butts

How is it possible
It seems like a bad joke
I'm laughing so hard
I start to cough and choke

I guess in the end
I really did overdose
It didn't quite kill me
But it really came close

So control your laughter
Maybe one chuckle's enough
That dang old funny
is powerful stuff

    Richard, LOL ;-) :-) ;-) ... my son once told me, we are lucky we are over powered by unhappy people, i think he thinks most peeps pass gas when they laugh... I'd hate to live in a real smelly world... about your poem... I miss laughing... sometimes I still watch cartoons, just to get a laugh or two... this world is not funny anymore. Well after reading your poem, I'm glad I do not laugh as much. I would hate to OD over funny stuff....xox~pd

  1. Date: 11/28/2012 7:36:00 PM
    Lol, yes. Laughter is the best medicine. Free and good. Now where do you go get something free nowadays? Richard, I'd like some more of that :)
