Why do we laugh?

Laugh out loud

A baby’s delicious laugh

We’ve been misinformed

Later, we’ll cry half


Heck, it’s time to laugh

But which kind?

The kinds that tickles your chest

Disrespectful and unrefined


Or the silent kind

Where the mouth’s corners

Are cartoonishly up

Reaching behind ears’ border?


Or border on the soft

The silent hum with nostalgic tones

Where you feel water

Dripping, sipping but never shown?


Why does a laugh

Show itself anyway?

We seem we want to laugh

The next emoji to display


We laugh because

It is hard to accept the fact:

We have little less laugh

Than we’re able to pack


Or we laugh because

We accept that we did otherwise before

We’ve got nothing to lose

We laugh to even the score
