To deny happiness is to belie life
No smile, no child, will blossom
We’re here by fate, by chance, by destiny
Dropped into a world in decline
But we must be sly
Weave around the negativity
Throw it in the closet
Charge it rent
And then speak
No, shout
No! Bellow about all that is good
All of the good
And Feel Good.
And Feel Right.
For happiness is life.
