Grumpiness



Can't believe how many grumpy people Inhabit Planet Earth today What's wrong with society, I don't understand Your face won't crack, what the hey It's best to smile coz life's really short Before you know it you're gone So smile damn it, results will be astounding Ignore all the crap that's going on Start a new trend, a whole new movement Be helpful, be loving, be kind A peaceful revolution to eliminate grumpiness Thousands will join you, you'll find Most people just want a reason to laugh Start talking like Daffy Duck Say to hell with society, start acting goofy You'll find life will no longer suck Some good advice from the old philosopher Eliminate the grumpies, olé! Greet each morning with a great big smile And you're sure to be happy all day © Jack Ellison 2013

    Now Dragon's running around talking like Daffy Duck... now that's a fun one... My cat saw a bird at the window and went for it... She forgot about the glass and ended up plastered on it ... before she slide down like Wily Coyote. It was a Kodak moment.... To bad it happened too fast to get my camara out. Dumb, flusterated cat... Poor thing... LOL.

    Yet, in this day & age, so many just refuse to embrace this simple rule of thumb. It's almost an epidemic. Wonderfully & playfully stated!
