Many years ago this fellow helped me through college. A good laugh is great for stress.



How does anger occur?

What makes it raise its ugly head?

Does it come from a slur?

From words someone said?


No, I think it does not.

It is not the words. Itís our need.

Our pride makes us hot.

Itís our worth, we heed.


Silly as this may seem.

Anger wonít accomplish a thing.

Itís healthier to dream.

 Pain comes from huffing?


Our minds canít identify.

Reality of others is too complex.

Only our realism can fly.

When we judge, we hex.


Judgment is beyond us.

Our harsh words, they only hurt.

Headaches cause a cuss.

And Ďallí feel out of sort.


Anger is so like a yawn.

Express it and it appears catching.

Believe me, this is no con.

Rage is not at all fetching.


And so I say to everyone.

Donít hold our selves in high regard.

Laughter is much more fun.

No need to be on guard.


Carry around a special joke.

Or keep with you a funny picture.

Then give yourself a poke.

Read or look, donít lecture.


Laughter makes us better.

Mirth, it, too, seems to be catching.

Nothing seems to matter.

And it is more relaxing.
