Hilarity in the Key of Be

it takes practice to be happy

to enjoy each day

no matter what comes your way

there’s no limits to hilarity

and the joys it brings

to little things

belly laughs and chuckles

achieve their happy goal

of bringing peace to your soul

look how breathless laughter

brings a smile to your face

when your in a bad place

oh, hilarity!

Where would we be without thee?

A Ridiculous Look At Animals

Flying bats wearing tiny hats pursued a family of rats who recently arrived to live at a community zoo

the elephants protested and so did a kangaroo

the lions and tigers had their say

the monkey’s were furious all day

the zebras simply didn’t care

the bears didn’t know they were there

the aadvarks put out an alert

and they all hid in the dirt

the exotic birds didn’t have much to say

they were just happy to fly and play

the polar bears didn’t stare

because they were unaware

the hippos bathing in pools

thought the rats were fools

the only ones glad to see the rat family

were the snakes… waiting patiently
