No More Doom And Gloom

Time for a happy-go-lucky poem No more doom and gloom There's enough of that stuff going around Life's just a big cartoon Live and laugh and have a ball Nothing's really gonna change So kick up your heels and sing out loud Though some may think you're deranged Who knows it could be contagious Soon the whole world will be having a ball Imagine, you could be the reason, my friend For peace to come to us all Am I a dreamer, guess you could say that Might as well try it, whatcha think Nothing else has worked up until now Let's try before we're right on the brink So kick up your heels and dance around Others will follow your lead All the world is waiting for is someone To step forward and plant the seed No more doom and gloom!!! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Right on Jack. What helped me the most was that I quit watching cable news.

    I'm doing a happy dance in my War of the Roses! Dogasaurus has been stopped, for now! Apparently, the penguins started complaining about wearing the gas masks... And I was feeding a sneeky supper to dogasaurus to continue the attacks till Dragon gave up on my roses... Winning! Or thought I was, until Grandpa Troll took us both down to the Lake for a time out, and a bath... We had regressed to a poo throwing contest... Well, I WAS winning... till he threw the first poo... Honest!... Dumb Dragon!
