Old Sourpuss

Today I met a man who laughed

Old Sourpuss

Today I met a man who laughed
    At everyone   with mocking glee;
I thought the fellow must be daft,
    For nothing funny could I see.
                        He even laughed at ME.

For I am rarely moved to mirth,
    And less disposed to smile than sigh;
Yet as groaned with gloom of earth
    I wondered: Was this sunny guy
                        A loony - or was I?

Well, now I get a heap of fun,
    For I have changed my point of view;
Like him I laugh at everyone -
    Oh! More directly, it is true. . . .
                        I even laugh at YOU.
