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 written by: Richard Lamoureux Smile you're on Candid Camera Contest

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

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 :)
