The Misuse of Laughter

The Misuse of Laughter
By Adele Swift

Laughter is created
With intent
Of joy
And release.
Good energy flows
Outward.
Whether a trill
Or an explosion
Or a bray
The receiver feels
Pleasure.
When used
To garner
Attention
For a self-involved
Nitwit
It is
Abrasive
Offensive
Manipulative
It is an
Insult
To Joy.


Adele Swift is a writer, dammit, who does not suffer fools gladly, if at all. Visit her blog, Swiftian Logic at http://swiftianlogic@blogspot.com.
