Reasons to be happy

Reasons to be happy Why should I be happy sir? I have a job and a secure marriage, I can walk, Talk, And use my hands freely, I don’t have cancer or cholera or glaucoma. I don’t have to run away from a war, Across deserts, over walls or seas to abroad. I can speak freely and say what’s on my mind, Unlike in China, Zimbabwe or Venezuela. I don’t have to queue to get food parcels and clothes, Or sleep on the streets holding signs for loose change. I wake up, Use hot clean water to wash, Dress in a suit. I’m not persecuted for colour, Race or religion, I can listen to music of choice, people of choice Get up in the morning, sleep in a bed at night.
