Felicity (poem)

Updated on December 5, 2016

Let’s call the town Felicity.

The townsfolk there were quite care free

A pleasant enough place to be

So what’s the story Wait and see

-

There was a girl lived in the town

We’ll call her Tess so you won’t frown

Tess likes a smile don’t put that down

She’s sweeter in her peasant gown

-

The only stress for town and girl

She had voice would make one whirl

It could and did make hair uncurl

To say it’s bad would be a pearl

-

Tess loved to sing She felt so sad

To know her singing drove folks mad

She knew her voice was really bad

Yet something to it made her glad

-

She tried to get professional aid

Some told her go They even paid

And some sought out a different trade

The rest just left They were afraid

-

So thus went life from day to day

The people laughed children at play.

Till voice of Tess put peace at bay

Ow Tess sweet Tess please go away

-

One day a circus brought a man

Sure I can help here Yes I can

Just leave your money in my van

And bring the girl to hear my plan

-

Well Tess she gladly went along

It wouldn’t hurt. It’d fix her song

The man said nothing could go wrong

And with the town she’d soon belong

-

The townsfolk gathered near the hall

They wondered just what would befall

And out walked Tess so straight and tall

But now she had no voice at all

-

She could still sing but without sound

A voice that made all proud was found

Warm joy was shared by all around

And Felicity rebounds

-

It’s true that Tess’s voice could slay

So bad it kept Bad Luck away

And he came back without delay

Forgotten place for him to play

-

Without experience to share

Felicity turned to Despair

And with Bad Luck they made a pair

Together strutting naught to spare

-

The town now theirs they made that clear

There was one place they dare not near

A silent voice still they could hear

That carefree voice filled them with fear
