CAN’T KILL THE LAUGHTER - a strange little tale of hilarity

When they tied me up
and hauled me off
to the asylum
they told me I was insane
“Don’t make me laugh,” I chortled.
“I already knew that!”

They fried my brain
with electric jolts
because I wouldn’t
stop laughing
“Stop, you’re killing me!”
I roared in fits of hilarity

They sent me out
through minefields
blew off an arm and leg
“It only hurts when I laugh”
I grinned
and couldn’t stop guffawing

They tied me to a stake
and set me on fire
“You must be a freakin’ witch”
they said
“Pretty freakin’ weird, huh?”
I told them
and rolled around
hysterically

They said I was absurd
and should take my life
more seriously
“Absurd!” I laughed
“You got that right!
It’s all absurd!”
I chuckled

“What is it with you?”
they scratched their heads
“I just get high from laughing, I guess.
Got a built-in giggleator
that just won’t quit”

So they tied me to a cross
and I hung there for days
just giggling
in fits of amusement

And they rolled me
in my grave
and I still kept giggling
“What was that all about?”
I asked regarding existence

They just shook their heads
“Freakin’ crazy” they muttered
and shoveled on the dirt

“Too… too… toodleloo”
I chuckled
and slipped into the earth
to laugh with all the worms
and grass
and molecules
of infinite mirth…
