Grin and Cure It

Feeling sad? Well that's too bad, But why mope around in a dark blue funk? Don’t let life’s trouble Burst your bubble. Why waste your time on all that junk? Now, life might have you in the pits, But it's not time to call it quits. Don't let those dark thoughts clutter up your mind. Come on now, let's meditate On things that cheer and elevate, And leave the morose, gloomy things behind. A great big laugh On your behalf Might drive the gloomy mist away. And a toothy grin Above your chin Could brighten someone else’s day. A chuckle might forestall The family doctor’s call, And, maybe, even shoo away the nurse. Some stuff and nonsense matter Could make the day go better, And, I guarantee, it will not make it worse.
