Laughter Made Me Do It

Laughter made me do it,
I swear

For now
the earth is bare
around me

I have sideward
turned
my head to see

What else can
my laughter bring
to those
around me.

This poem came about after seeing the grave of a famous comedian in the 1800'sgravesite. He had the establishment of the graveyard put his gravestone leaning over like it was looking out from where he was buried and he had a really funny remark put on the stone. I was impressed by the way it was done and just out of me popped this poem. He wanted not only to be funny in life but to be funny even afterwards, and I think he did a great job.....
There is flow of positive energy in your poems. I like your hopefulness in this poem through your laughter.
