Give A Smile
'Twill give the blood a richer hue,
The eye a brighter brown or blue,
And make your friends more kind and true;___
Just try it; 'tis worth while.
Just give a hearty laugh,
If you would expurgate the bile
Of jealousies that life defile,
And ailments various and vile;
Naught better can you quaff.
Just give a loud guffaw,
If you would feel within the thrill,
That all the blue-hued microbes kill,
And cures instanter many an ill,
In liver, lung or maw.
