A Dose of Laughter

I'm not well. Can't you tell?
Kinda low, so,
give me a dose of laughter.

Mirth will heal my every ill
and give me rest from my distress.
Now, give me a dose of laughter.

Glee can revive, keep me alive
and give me chance to happy dance.
So, give me a dose of laughter.

I'd crawl a mile for a smile;
but to get relief from my grief
I need a dose of laughter.

Isn't it plain that I'm in pain?
You can relieve if only you'd please
give me a dose of laughter.

Laughter is pure and can surely cure.
What ails my heart would soon depart
If I had a dose of laughter.

I can't be strong for very long.
I'm sinking fast, unless at last
you give me a dose of laughter.

I don't need a pill for my ill.
I'm just spent in lament
and require a dose of laughter.

I must retain what still remain;
but don't delay, I'm in a bad way.
Bring me a dose of laughter.

Though insecure, I want to endure.
But I'm drifting and need uplifting.
Please, give me a dose of laughter.

Even though, I don't know
what it contains that kills my pain.
Just give me a dose of laughter.

It works somehow, so come on now;
Let go of doubt, I can't do without
My healing dose of laughter.

If you wait around I'll surely be found
lying dead in my bed.
Rush me my dose of laughter.

Compulsive and inventive: new poetry from Nick Laird
Irish Times
The quarrel in this book is between the language-loving poet for whom one phrase deliquesces into another and the more hard-bitten and judicious figure of Autocomplete, who holds language to account, who wants an ethical warrant for his aesthetic skill.
