Laugh Track

I wonder if they guessed
What they’d be laughing at
The people on the tracks
Heard almost every hour
Year after year
But taped
So long ago
Most of those who laughed
Are dead now.

I only pray
That when they laughed
The pleasure of the laugh
Was real,
That the laugh
Reflected how they felt
When they were still alive
That distant day.
