A Dose of Laughter as Medicine

Updated on April 16, 2017


They say laughter is the best medicine, for what ails you, my friend,

Just ask Carol and Lucy, if it works, while their giggles never to end.

When life is treating you so badly, don't give up, just tell a funny joke,

Then is a happier day you're sure gonna see, giving your ribs a poke.




Those in the medical profession swear the brain is to be cured,

When exposed to a comedian's laughter, if it all can be endured.

You just may be the benefactor of some comics or funny actors,

As we hear each line in jest, listen to the rest, reassuring factors.



When we're in pain, it's hard to bear, don't forget relief is there,

By tuning in the laughter and tuning out the pain, of our repair.

A funny faced chimpanzee at the zoo, a silly line or maybe two,

Can make a difference in how we feel, little things we all can do.


If neurones were all changed to "Cureons", we might be better off,

When we at least give it a shot, better the chance than just to scoff.

As a new tomorrow breaks the horizon, to make ours, a better place,

When it seems disheartening, try to laugh, then put on a happy face.

Hello...endorphins, pain-relieving chemicals in the brain are released when we laugh. Maybe worth looking into my friends...
