Laughter & Smiles

What is laughter?

But a nervous reaction

To uncomfortable feelings

Lit with passion

Listen closely

To the outbreak of madness

For, laughter indeed

Is an expression of sadness

What is a smile?

But an awkward tug

At sweeping unpleasantness

Under the rug

Look a little closer

At the lips so black and blue

For, smiles indeed

Are used to band-aid the bruise
