Today, Michael asks us to consider the notion of “Happy Ever After’.
The Happy Ever After
Days filled with joy and laughter,
Not a care in the world, what fun
Is perfection itself for some.
A face always full of smiles,
Feet that don’t hurt from walking miles,
No aches and pains in our knees,
We can run and sprint if we please.
Things seen through the eyes of a child,
So easily they are beguiled.
A world full of love and glee
What a wondrous place it would be,
‘Cept our Leaders don’t want it so,
Changing minds, dealings to and fro.
They lie through their shimmering teeth,
Not a word of truth lies beneath,
The smile masks the lack of trust,
Happy Ever After fades to dust.
