Happiness songs don’t

Make everybody happy

I’m unhappy that

Advertisers overuse

Happiness songs

Maybe some individuals

Prefer to be unhappy

If they so desire?

Perhaps a Constitutional

Amendment to insure their

Life, Liberty, and pursuit

Of unhappiness would help?

Why do some people

Say “Merica instead

Of America to appear

Cool and hip?

Something else to add

To my growing “to do” list

Aspire to become

More cool and hip

Right now–I don’t feel it!

  1. Reblogged this on itinerantneerdowell and commented:

    “Is everybody happy?” A question asked frequently during vaudeville days. To which, a few “no’s” would come from the audience. The same response would be true with happiness songs. Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy, Pharrell William’s song about “what happiness means to you” was more recent.
