This is a collection of happy faces
most of the time
on a vacation, a tour you say,

china, hongkong, macau,
the U.S.A.
Phuket, bali,
budapest, brazil
vienna, london,

on poses like yaki-yaki
selfie-selfie,
flyie-flyie in the airie airie

no one wants to confront reality
of a disease,
a weak heart, a pain in the ass,
a dying situation,
a life in prison, a life in waste,

it seems then that happiness is everybody's business

not sadness or misfortune
not death or decay

when you start crying,
true to the saying, you cry alone

when you are lucky
wins a lotto, or gains on a venture

now, you've got what you have to do
flow with the mob
have facebook.

better than having drinks that go beyond
the limits of your sanity

better than suicide.

Cheers!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
