The Prompt – Laughter


It starts with a giggle
That’ll make you jiggle
A sweet little noise
Full of charm and poise

It grows to a chuckle
With a bit of luck it’ll
Stop itself there
Or you’ll have to prepare

For the full-on guffaw
Not long before
You’re caught in the throes
And food comes out your nose

  1. Brilliant interpretation of the prompt, love it. As a teenager I would find myself giggling uncontrollably, far too often πŸ™‚ Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. This poem brought those moments (in particular in Physics class for some reason?!) flooding back πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for linking to #ThePrompt x
    PS. Linky Tools decided not to send me emails to notify me when people linked up this week, so sorry if I’m super late to comment on this…

    1. I’m a giggler too. Find it hard to stop once I get going. I’m either really miserable or hysterical it seems! Don’t worry about the late comments – I’m constantly behind with the blogs. X
