Most infectious

I played natures most infectious instrument today
I felt from the pit of my stomach to my mouth
It caught me by surprise
And yet made me so happy
Laughter was it
Laughter indeed
And I held my stomach trying to stop it 
Held it so tight I think I squeezed out more
It took the pain away 
It lightened the air
It made us close again
It filled a gap of angry with overwhelming joy
It spread between you and me 
Happily 
I say it's the best
The best instrument I ever played 
Never out of tune
Always on key
Never missing a beat
And easy to hall around
Any one can play it and yet
Everyone does
The rich and poor
The tall and short
The old and young 
I played natures most infectious instrument today
It's one thing I won't retire from
