Laugh by Omar Waqar

Return from wars to find your lover's left, just laugh.
Burn your hands on home cooked meals, just laugh.

Orange slices for the starving; cutting stings your eyes.
When all your hopes become bad deals, just laugh.

Your friends have choked on smoke from your fire.
Burst out when the coughing lung heals, just laugh.

Let them take away your rights, oh! let them hypnotize.
Now show the world how great it feels, just laugh.
