โ€œSAD! HAPPY!โ€ a poem!! [ ๐Ÿ™‚ – Yea! What else is new? ] a.k.a.: โ€œStrange, Yet Complementary Bedfellows!โ€ TUESDAY: October 16, 2018

Sad-AND-Happy are ONE because –

Without-some-Sad (pause) Ha-ppy-canโ€™t-โ€œbuzz!โ€

For, without the Sad-which-is-Happyโ€™s BEST FRIEND,

Happy would get Sad too! and both would end!

Without-Anti-Christ – Christ-would-go POOF!

Without The Hard, (pause) Softโ€™s so aloof!

Sad & Happy – sleep together!

And they can-handle – any weather!

IF-the weatherโ€™s-โ€œblue,โ€ overcast and dreary,

Sad gets so HAPPY, whereas Happy is weary!

They-like-to-switch-off – to keep-things gay and true!

โ€œI-love-you!โ€ says Happy; โ€œYah, but Iโ€™m-so BLUE!โ€

โ€œWell, Iโ€™m kinda orange! So what shall we do?โ€

โ€œLetโ€™s complement-one another: You laugh! Iโ€™ll- do-BOO-HOO!โ€

And our-two-friends, through life – well, they strode hand-in-hand!

And-brought-joy-and-some-suffering – throughout The Land!

And one did exalt – and one doth weep long!

And one is out-going – and one has no(?) song!?

EXCEPT!!! – songs of sadness – which do-have their good place –

For-they-give rise to-HAPPY-TUNES! & they keep-the Human Race,

BALANCED – and-uncertain-of-The-next-act-in-The-Play:

COMEDY-and-TRAGEDY! Have a little (of both) each day!
