Let Laughter Live

by smileycloud

banning age old comics
destroying laughter
murdering humour;-

a sad state of affairs

ban humans instead
stifle their gloom-ridden words
follow not their manipulative ways;-

a peaceful existence

Cartoon characters to rule the world
A much happier nicer place to live

Sylvester and Tweetie
Tom and Jerry
Elmer Fudd
Yosemite Sam
Daffy Duck
Bugs Bunny

Mel Blanc and friends
with their imagination
all harmless characters
much wiser than people
a fun-filled place where
the bad guy always lost
the good guy always won
modern society twisted their brilliant work
to suit current renegades' own selfish purposes
creating bedlam and frowns


The pictured image of Tom and Jerry is from a site
I googled about Disney characters
