Is there anything more uplifting than laughter that’s infectious?
Is it not the best medication, its effect can be miraculous?
The source, really it does not matter once you feel the vibe
The feeling which I get – I’ll admit, is so hard to describe.
Sometimes it’s silly humour that really strikes a chord
Other times its reading matter that undoubtedly does the trick
Irrespective of the source, just like the twin blade sword
Comedy with a cutting edge, to be great must be slick?
I guess we all have our favourites, when we want our spirits raised
The zaniness of Black Adder & Dad’s Army are two that come to mind
The Two Ronnie’s along with Tommy Cooper they too must be praised
One could not omit Around the Horne or the Goons that would be so unkind.
What prompted this poem I must admit, was a shot of Morecombe & Wise
For slickness if nothing more, they would have to get first prize
When you are feeling down and out who gives you a lift?
Whoever does the trick of lifting us up when we are down, we are thankful for your gift.
Can’t sign off without a mention of the man with the tickling stick
Doddy and his Diddy Men – Now there is slick.
