Uncanned laughter: We laughed, we dared not cry


A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.


It was meant to be a joke,

It was not meant to harm,

(I’ll not tell you what or why)

Or even drag on,

But the hurts hurtled on,

On and on,

With the pace of a juggernaut.

We grew weary, we grew teary

Yet, we laughed through our wails.

We dared not show our pain.

We laughed because we dared not cry.

~Linus Fernandes.
