Time To Laugh

By John I. Blair

Once more the news I hear
Makes me want to cry.
Thereís so much sadness,
Violence, rage in the world.
So why not cry? After all,
Some say thereís nothing
Like having a good bawl.
But today I think instead
Iíll find some way to laugh;
For laughter thatís not sour
Seems to cure me just a bit,
Ease my own anger
And cool my urgent need
To scream frustration
At the badness.
Laughter heals my soul;
Thatís illogical, but real.
And though my laughter
Wonít make the evil go,
It makes the evil
Almost bearable.
