Laughter is an Egg

by John Agard


Laughter is an egg

with a crick-crack face

that can hide in the heart

of the human race.

Tummy tickling, rib-cracking and even wee-yourself laughs can all be found in the pages of this eggstraordinary collection of poems, riddles, jokes and ballads from the wonderful John Agard.
