Laughter is the best medicine
but can it cure the ill's of the soul?

Can it cure the curse of sadness
and fill the void of a hole?

Can it replace a frown with a smile
and lift up drooping lips?

Replace pessimism with optimism
and form a full eclipse?

I decided to see for myself
and put it to the test

It wasn't all that easy but I tried
and gave it my best

And not before long,
I was surprised to find

The soul was cured,
and the hole resigned

The frown was no more
and my lips had lifted,

In place of pessimism,
optimism existed

Before I knew it,
I burst into laughter

At the taste of medicine,
for so long I'd sought after.

Thank you all for your kind remarks. I have tried this remedy of laughter and you know what? It really does work.
