“THE-A (REALLY) HAPPY SINGERS, YOU-KNOW” a poem 04/04/2019 (Thursday!) Tonight is “karaoke time” at Ole Crystal Bar, here in beautiful, downtown Alpine, TX.
Happiness-for-me-is-really (pause) just-really-what-it’s-all-about!
I-don’t-even-really-care – about-folks DETERMINED-to-wanna-pout!
I love them just the same, but they might-a-wanna-know:
[that] WITH FUNKY, HAPPY PEOPLE – I’D REALLY RATHER “GO!”
Of course, sometimes THAT option – is NOT upon “The Table,”
But-I-can-at-least-seek-out-some-happiness-anyway – you-know! as-I’m-able!
And, if you’re really feeling mean most-of-the-time – Well, that’s-fine;
If you want-to call me names, well (pause) HOW DI – VINE!
But-just-a-please-a-know-a: I’m-really-not-adverse –
With someone kind-a “kind,” who-has-a-pleasant, happy smile,
Who sings a happy, little song mostly all the while!
And, well, you-might-consider, IF WE’RE “STUCK” HERE ANYWAY:
“It’s-a kinda-sorta-OK place – mostly! throughout-the-day!”
So, you might-as-well-a-smile – and-give-[someone]-a-hug-or-a-happy-wave!
Of course!!! IF-it-makes-YOU-happy, you-can-just-get-mad-and-rave,
For, perhaps, sometimes (you-know) that-might-be-“appropriate” to-do;
Yet, I’m-really NOT suggesting (pause) doing-THAT for-you!
BUT! HAPPY IS – AS HAPPY DOES,
And “Different Strokes”* seems-valid, because,
There’s SUCH AMAZING DIVERSITY (pause) lurking here and there,
WHO KNOWS WHAT IS, WHAT IS, IT IS – AND-REALLY ISN’T FAIR!?
* – for different folks
- Wisdom & Kindness
- And who in this world knows?
- And beheld an immense glory
Flooding with fire the drops
Spilled on miraculous leaves
Of the fresh green lime-tree tops.
- The rain was ending, and light
Lifting the leaden skies.
It shone upon ceiling and floor
And dazzled a child’s eyes.
