The Perfect Fake-Laugh


The Perfect Fake-Laugh

If you're like me

Then this is for you

If you're like me

Then read this through

If you are ever

Caught unawares

Trying to act

Like you don't care

Then listen closely

And come near

The solution

You will hear

Squint your eyes

Drop your jaw

Wrinkle your nose

To do the job

Clap your hands

Lean forward a bit

Raise your eyebrows

That's the spirit

Turn to your neighbor

And give a smile

Even if you hurt

All the while

Repeat until

You're satisfied

Until the pain

Leaves your eyes

Now, my child

If you do that

You have discovered

The perfect fake-laugh

The End
