Elfje: (Cinquain) classic: each word only one syllable .
smile big grin not a frown full of good cheer laugh
. Tanka: 5-7-5, 7-7 . do the selfish thing no need to think of others I want what I want
the addict out of control lives destroyed in the process .
of all of the gifts received in sobriety, laughter has to be the greatest for too many it is the gift that is received the latest most addictive substances act as depressants those who start young never outgrow adolescents
the alcoholic/addict thinks a laugh is weird hooked to an emotion that is feared always laughing at someone or something laughing at them because they are nothing
eventually they understand to laugh with, not at at ourselves, not at others, always just a tit for a tat the best humor is not at another’s expense the laugh grows along with the common sense
a laugh a day will keep the doctor/shrink away and for most they pray for another sober day
