Another poem from the book MOXIE DAY and Family!

Giggle, giggle, snicker, laugh.
Giggle till you split in half.
Chortle-snort and chortle-roar,
laugh and roll around the floor.

Roll and rollick. Jump for joy.
Hoot and holler, boy, oh, boy.
Laugh until you start to cry.
Laugh until you almost die.

Take a breath then start again,
giggle till 'bout half-past ten.
Laugh until you start to cough.
Laugh until your head falls off.

Laughing helps us to rejoice,
so laugh until you lose your voice.
Now you can't laugh anymore,
so sleep and make a silly snore.
