PERSPECTIVE AND LAUGHTER
As children grow older and older,
they smile and laugh lesser and lesser.
Kids are so spontaneous without words,
now code switch to name geeks and nerds.
Go to school for a certificate to earn a living,
in the end, grimaces and furrows of aging.
When language evolves, laughter dissolves,
humour and jokes for social survival involves.
Belly giggling, ribs tickling in expiratory laugh,
boost immunity and build bonds on own behalf.
Comedians laugh at themselves by acts of misbelief,
the motif was the momentary memory loss of grief.
Placing laughing and crying in their right perspective,
silent prayers and healing sound to forget and forgive.
