From Charlie Brown Comic Strip

Snoopy is dancing up a storm.
A big smile on his face.
He’s as happy as can be.
Lucy comes along.
She says “You may be happy today,
Doesn’t mean you’ll be happy tomorrow.”
Snoopy ignores her.
He just goes on dancing.
She keeps looking at him unapprovingly,
And then says,
“Happiness isn’t everything, you know,
It will never bring you peace of mind.”

Maybe Death?

There are several options.
mountain climbing,
dumster diving,
wearing thermo underwear
to boost your immunity system,
joining the Republican Party.
If you were smart
you should have had them
put in a clause
in your birth certificate
exempting you from death.
But it's too late now.
Maybe death?
I don't think so.

Weather Report

Snow flurries
The branches are brittle
Nothing is moving anywhere
And the tea kettle in the kitchen
Is calling for my attention.
