Every day, I'm reminded in some way
that we, including me, should try to be
more gay (and not in the sexual way).
The Amish know small pleasures can be so
great for the soul. Casserole and a stroll?
Who wants to go? Eenie meeny miny mo.
Brief brain breaks are so important to take
because it just may, be during the stray
your brain makes a fabulous non-mistake.
This mantra is the raison d'etre
I can smile for a while as is my style -
try extra on the tense end of the spectra.
Its hardest to not try your gosh darn best
when you're confused or your ego is bruised.
The real test, is can you take a smile rest?
When you're at work frustrated by some jerk
who's slow and must show you stuff that you know,
zone out the twerp -- find a comedic perk.
If your keys are lost, rather than accost
those near with fear to make sure they appear
'cuz memories get crossed when stressfully sloshed...
Calm yourself down and wipe off that sad frown.
Briefly, discretely, forget completely -
laugh at a clown or walk around the town.
Smiles are everywhere. Choose them if you dare.
You just may find your mind likes to unwind
and to be fair helps your nerves not to ware.
Days are easier when life's cheesier.
Brains smoothly sail through hail without fail
when you're giddier than when snippier.
So, spread happiness today like it's childs play.
Give a double hand wave to your friend Dave.
Just be more gay (no, not the sexual way).
