Happy Heffelumps To You

Happiness by Phil Burns

Happiness by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant easily define happiness
It is all different things to all different folks
He is not too bright
That is why he must write
These atrocious rhymes because he can’t do clever jokes

A wee tot is happy to hear a bum or a fart noise
And is over the parrot when he sees carousels
A lady just might
Think the world is all right
When she hears the sound of her own wedding bells

A chap has ambitions to be a comedian or rock star
So he is happy if he is holding a mic
Others jump at the chance
To do the Tour de France
And happily spend three weeks on a bike

You may even get your buzz from the night sky
And the mystery of a twinkling tiny star
Or riding a horse
Ploughing up a golf course
Or driving like a maniac in a very fast car

There are those who get their pleasure from nature
Taking a swim in the Mediterranean Sea
A quick quack from a ducky
Makes some think they are lucky
And others enjoy nothing more than a hug and a chat with a tree

But AnElephant thinks happiness is really quite simple
Although he sometimes acts perhaps just a teeny bitty wild
Some dudes consider him daft
He has an infectious laugh
When he sees the smile of his perfect grandchild

For Ron

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
