What makes you smile?

What tickles your fancy?

Is it slapstick or puns?

Or perhaps necromancy?


I like a good laugh,

You know one where it hurts,

Gasping for breath,

But no body fluid spurts!


I want a tickle in my brain,

Through words that I read.

Or show me an action,

That’s funny decreed.


I don’t know what is witty,

Until I am slapping my thigh,

And then even better,

When I’m starting to cry!


Some people are amusing,

When they walk in a room.

But not cuz they’re funny,

It’s their perpetual gloom!


My day starts with sunshine,

Like a smile cross the sky.

And I am bound and determined,

Not just to stand by!


So my best I will try,

To bring you some joy.

Then the last thing to do,

Is laughter deploy!

    Oh yes, I liked that, Pamela. Plenty of laughter in this house…My husband is always playing around with words, and being Cockney (East London) and Jewish, there is often something to smile or laugh at. It keeps the doctor away! x .

    I can find humor in just about anything. It’s right there for the picking. We’ve all experienced fun and laughter as well as gloom and doom. Can’t understand why folks often choose the latter. Such a waste of time.

    Are you familiar with Woody Allen’s humour? It can be quite dark, but certainly amuses me.
    “I don’t mind dying, as long as I ‘m not there when it happens…” ?! x And an ‘Ericism’ from my husband…”Most words are easy to explain, but enigma is shrouded in mystery.” x
