Poetry by Khem Aunghk Annu

Laughter is

medicine,

and

it doesn’t take

a doctor

to prescribe.

It is in itself a healer

that has no home,

has no religion to preach,

it doesn’t need a wife

or

husband;

it has no code of ethics,

it leans not to the right

or the left,

therefore, it has no politics.

It has no sympathy for the

poor

and doesn’t speak the language

of the rich.

It is what is,

a song without lyrics,

peculiar

to its owner – the one you will.
