Contest entry for Out of the Fog Round 7 December 2016
While in my dream I thought it was so real
It was the funniest thing I had seen
I laughed out loud and I swear I could feel
I surely did not want to seem so mean.
My friend was acting a clown right then
What a fine court jester my boy would make
On my face I knew there was a wide grin
How could my boy be such a total flake?
I laughed at him until I nearly cried
He was nothing more than a total ham
With tears of laughter I faced down my pride
I began to join him in the funny slam.
I awoke then with a great laughing start
His hilarity had invaded my heart!
