Happy Despite the World: a Poem
I laugh at politics that imposing whore
at all dubious authorities parading around
those brainwashers I despise to their very core
and every scary demon I beat to the ground.
Celebrating life with each and every breath
along with my freedom, so clownish and sweet
not thinking of illness, not thinking of death
living this life that's wondrous and complete.
Who are they at all to stand in my way
to thwart this momentum of my joyous flight
I shake them off my wings and continue my play
with a sovereign pride that's feeling so right.
Despite all that misery and self-inflicted pain
and despite their trying to make me join
I don't mind my path going against the grain
So I let them have all riches, quite happy with my coin.
Given this gift of one life to live
with a mind just wise enough to know it
I nurture this joy as well as I can conceive
too grateful for it as to ever blow it.
Despite the world and not being its copy
but respecting and loving all creatures alive
I don't really mind looking somewhat dopy
drunk with self-made happiness on which I thrive.
