No Giggling Allowed”
In case you giggle while in church;
(my friend elbows me way too much)
You dare not look or glance her way
lest sinful howl; disastrous day!
Your mom has half-turned in her seat
her eyes now dare you sound or peep!
You swallow hard such loud guffaw;
and inside feels like buzzing saw!
O, world I cannot hold you thus;
the laughter from my belly thrust.
With hanky to my bleating throat
I exit quickly ‘fore I bust.
