Laughing My Head Off


I laughed so much, my head fell off 

and bounced along the road

I chased it, headless, best I could

for fear it might explode


I spun and pin-balled down the street

I neck-butted a tree

The shoppers yelled, “You’re off your head!”

I cried, “No it’s off me.”


Then suddenly almighty pain

as something bit my toes

I trapped the football-face beneath

Bent down and picked my nose


A bowling ball-like cranium

A skull with tickled brain

I scooped and gagged its cackling lips

and screwed it on again


But something still felt very wrong

I passed a windowpane

and saw my head on back to front

then laughed it off again
