O, happy happy happy! (How happy am I to-day?) by Kaston Griffin

I’m so happy!
The sun shines and the flowers bloom!
The Lord be praised for there’s nothing happier than
to-day’s happy day.

Press a gun to my temple and let petals
burst from the warm barrel and
penetrate me
with smiles and roasted marshmallows!

O, how I giggle at the men of the past:
Neanderthals, Victorians, Bohemians, and, too,
the muslims, buddhists, atheists, and
jews and blacks on this happiest of happy
Christian days!

My insides float in warm strawberry jam.
O, happy day! Is there no end to the good
that glides over the world like peach syrup?

Thailand is blooming!
Louisiana is singing!
Koreans are holding hands!
Ethiopia is laughing!

Who could tear through my impenetrable, faith-full
ballistic vest of happiness?
Who could wring the happy perspiration
from the bright underpants of life to-day?

Together, let’s walk unafraid
through the flowering minefields of happy.

  1. I’m not quite sure if I should laugh or cry. I think an exclamation point hit me in the eye… :D

    My favorite line-
    >Who could wring the happy perspiration
    from the bright underpants of life to-day?<

    Gotta love that! This was sheer awesomeness.

  2. Wow, this is powerful stuff, I applaud you for writing this.

  3. Desperation-tinged mania. Lots of verve here. Loved the second stanza especially. Peace…
