A fit of laughter

It caught her when she didn’t expect, Attacking her in a tight whirl, It came at her from out of the blue, To put her into a swirl, And there was nothing at all that she could do, Nothing to stop the snorts, Nothing to stop her belly ache laughing, From laughing at the silliest thoughts, These fits of laughter they had their own plan, Ignoring her every desire, To stop them, calm them, pack them away, Instead her laughter got higher, Each nerve in her body had gone to a party, Her body became a little bit wild, When the littlest joke was said to her, When her lips went off in a smile.
