Slapping Thighs Goodbye

Hilarious to a fault she always grinds
The laughter shared is only in her mind
Nothing she shares goes without her asthma
Where she tends to spread her miasma

This one’s intentional jocularity
Causes real discomfort and irregularity
Every once and a while she’ll stop and breathe
Because the smart ones are getting up ready to leave
