because lithium is too expensive

I spent the last 40 minutes trying to find a nice poem for English class. Half that time was spent rooting through boxes to find Where the Sidewalk Ends, which is the book of poetry which stands out most prominently in my memory of childhood poems. I also was kinda hoping I’d be able to find something that held a little meaning to even an older audience… and I did, maybe. After flipping through the book I’ve decided on a poem entitled “The Land of Happy.” It reads:

Have you been to The Land of Happy
Where everyone’s happy all day,
Where they joke and they sing
Of the happiest things,
And everything’s jolly and gay?
There’s no one unhappy in Happy,
There’s laughter and smiles galore.
I have been to The Land of Happy-
What a bore!

Whether such ideas hold true or not is something I haven’t quite decided. But, in interim, it makes for a rather interesting poem.
