Hello I seem to hae forgotten you for a few days, so sorry, blame it on the Winter Olympics I'm afraid. xxx

        LAUGHTER WITH TEARS ........ FUN
TEARS WITHOUT LAUGHTER......HURTS
A L L   M A D 

Laughter"He is mad as a hare, poor fellow,
And should be in chains," you say.
I haven't a doubt of your statement,
But who isn't mad, I pray ?
Why the world is a great asylum,
And people are all insane,
Gone daft with pleasure or folly,
Or crazed with passion and pain.

The infant who shrieks at a shadow,Dame Fashion
The child with his Santa Claus faith,
The woman who worships Dame Fashion,
Each man with his notions of death,
The miser who hoards up his earnings,
The spendthrift who wastes them too soon,
The scholar grown blind in his delving,
The lover who stares at the moon,

The Saint
who talks to GodThe poet who thinks life a paean,
The cynic who thinks it a fraud,
The youth  who goes seeking for pleasure,
The preacher who dares talk of God,
All priests with their creeds and their croaking.
All doubters who dare to deny,

The happy who find aught to wake laughter,Totoro
The sad who find aught worth a sigh,
Whoever is downcast or solemn,
Whoever is gleeful and glad,
Are only the dupes of delusions
We are all of us... all of us MAD.


Written of course by the wonderful Ella Wheeler Wilcox,
from her tiny poetry book Poems of Cheer. page 96 a Langham Booklet 1917
