Laughter is the best form of medicine?

Last year whilst sitting in a group of likeminded people for a mood management session, one of the other “sitters” mentioned that they would sometimes, if confronted with a difficult situation, just burst out into laughter, no matter where or when!
So this prompted us all to try our range of laugh’s so to speak, some being a bit nervous then others in the group and obviously held back from a full on stomach buster. So I went away and wrote this poem for the group on the subject of laughing, it did have the desired effect whilst they were reading it and after.
I hope you have enjoyed this poem and hopefully it also made you laugh or even a little smile or maybe a stomach buster was needed.
