Laughter is the

great antidote

for pretence and

the rib-tickling joyous

way to heal those

petty differences

that divide and sour.


In laughter shared

and in humour caught

like a wonderful contagion,

there is no dominance

and expressions of superiority,

for they are dissolved in mirth

and in the authenticity

that comes with

the raucous sound

of comic relief and the

sunny smiles that are

its visual cues.
