Much praise goes to motherhood,
Stars and stripes and apple pie,
Picket fences, well-mowed lawns
And steeples white and high.

More praise should go to antic folk,
With their wry, ironic ways,
Who find a source of laughter
In what other people praise.

Show what's praised by average folk
To anyone endowed with wit
And see how quickly they can find
A way to make a joke of it.

Seeing just how funny
Things that we hold dear can be
Should remind us that we may be fools
To take them all so seriously.

Dom~
Well .... we sure get the opportunity to praise the laughter of the 'antics' of many here.  These pages brim with humor.
Perhaps you have read our own WayOutWalt ?
LongJohn ?  Balladeer ?  Rex ?  ToeRag ?
Just to mention a few of our 'antics'.
Enjoy ....
and I enjoyed your poem.
