Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

Before the fall we are sure that Adam,
Laughed a lot with his ‘Madam’;
When they fell into sin,
Laughter’s been thrown into a bin.

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

‘Tis needed by that small boy,
Who is yearning for the toy;
‘Tis needed too by the restless youth,
Who is rather callous and uncouth!

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

‘Tis needed by the doting mother,
Whose life is all a bother;
‘Tis needed too by yuppies,
Who run in the rut like puppies.

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

‘Tis needed by the middle-aged men,
And all who are slowly losing their steam;
‘Tis needed too by the faithful when,
They feel like fish out of the stream!

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

‘Tis needed by aging people,
Who’re climbing up the steeple;
‘Tis needed too by you I can tell,
‘Cos you,ve read me so far so well!

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

Since the Lord Jesus has saved you and me,
Let’s laugh aloud: We’re all set free!
So why not throw a belly laugh,
Let’s praise the Lord with a hearty laugh!

Isn’t there something you, me and all people need?
‘Tis simple! What we all need is laughter indeed!

Anthony, this is by far my most favourite of all the wonderful stories and poems you have written. The repetition worked very well here, and your rhythm was perfect.

Good job!

very nicely done...enjoyed you taking a different approach. It almost sounds like a song.
Marina Rojas10/28/04
This was just wonderful! 'Tis true indeed, all we need is glorious laughter!
Verlie Ruhl10/28/04
I really enjoyed your poem! I especially like the closing lines where you tie it together--we're free to laugh because of Jesus. Amen!
