Laughter (a suspension of ordered thought) -- by Bob Atkinson

(a suspension of ordered thought)
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

laughter short circuits minds
but, in a gentle sort of way
confusion healing synapses
therapy for our burdened brains

as a release from cares each day
this chuckle lets us incubate
and move into a happy place
as if we've won life's race

feelings from our torsos
drawing up into our nose
clamp down upon our brains allowing
senseless perceptions to roam

seems as if directed minds
become so quivering as to shake
while nothing worries us when
we laugh until we're in a teary state

laughter lulls our sense of order
until doesn't matter what we do
we look up to down, rain cotton crowns
on desert trees moistened by honey dew

laughter defined becomes a cure
from burdens of our program
letting brains heal in short time
by release from rules of order
