Their laughter and craziness was contagious, their jokes stupidly hilarious and their "insults" to each other blindingly stupid.

Nothing ever came from his prayers,
So soon enough he gave up on them,
Gave up on the idea of God,
and all higher power.
People would always thank God for all the good he gave them.
