Laugh for the world laughs

Complex in context

This world is still your clown.

With its shuddering to a halt,

Then the steam.

Or the blank stare in the stair well.

Always it is in humour

That the out takes of life can be seen.

Yes always in its humour.

Be it with the prat fall

Or the sight gags of life,

It is laughter

Which keep us whole.

And the price of a giggle?

Oh about the same

As the cost of a smile.
