Laugh At First Sight

There was a guy who itched for a fight Wanting to beat the first man in sight But let his guard down As he faced a clown And then laughed for the rest of the night The human race has but one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. For Write With the Wit of Twain Contest

Hi David, This is a cute poem and laughter is so much needed in this cruel, cruel world we live in. If we all laugh a little, it's the best medicine!!!! I don't get a chance to get on Poetry Soup that much but I finally got on tonight to post a few of my poems. I'm always so busy working on writing my books and short stories. Take care Celine Rose Mariotti
