Laughing Devil saddens me on happy a occasion

Was having gala time with friends in Niece's marriage function Spirited friends thought of having bhang* for fun of rarity Greedy of mild floater effect, scary of hangover, finally gave in for fun Toast raised with glass of 'bhang', few more and began party Intoxicated, Laughing Monster seized me, laughed with insanity Friends tried all to normalise laughing tantrum But monstrous laugh only gained momentum Panic mounted, as I was summoned by Panditji*for marriage ritual As a maternal unclr, had to perform customary ritual with bride-groom Stuck with intoxicated laugh, but serious was ritual, embarrassed one and all Gained normalcy post ceremony, cursed self, all fired, pity having no room Pledged never to indulge in bhang, took a life-time vow soon Marriage album without my ritual snap, still condemns me Memory of laughing devil, on happy a occasion still saddens me .................................................................................................................................. PS (*) : a) Bhang - Indian hemp, a milk concoction, having potential of ***** intoxication & narcotic effect. Intoxication high results in mad indulgence of repetitive action for many hours. The action, one is engaged in at the beginning time of knock-out state perpetuates for many hours e.g if one was laughing... he will continue to laugh for many hours.... b) Panditji – Priest performing marriage ritual ========================================================== Rhyme scheme : a-b-a-b-b-c-c ( Entry for Members contest – The Devil made me do it by Thvia Shetley)

Laughing Devil...good one! Certainly, you have been forgiven by your family...time to forgive yourself when you look back at the pictures. Just tell yourself, "The devil made me do it!" Funny story...sorry for the associated sadness, though. Thanks for sharing.
