Happiness Concluded, for Karen

The little Blue Bird of Happiness
Sits on my garden bed
I think I'll take my 44
And shoot the blighter dead
Lest the Cormorant of Futility
Come and perch upon my head.

Or the Hummingbird of Irritation
Suck the pupils from my eyes
And the Vaguely Anxious Vulture
Come with sharp dischordant cries
And suck the cerebellum from
My ocular cavities.

Then the Penguin of Cold Fury
And the Slightly Sadist Gull
Will come with evil gleaming eyes
And nest within my skull
And set up a battering and clattering
Within the bloodied hull.

And the waddling and the flapping and the cawing and the screeching
Of that aviary in my head
Shall make me want to end it all
With a bolt of steaming lead
All because that little Bluebird sat

Thanks Vikki. I'm just wondering, where can I get one of those penguins as a pet???

From Moe. He has killer whales and pandas, I'm sure he could round up a pair of penguins.

Or Kramer. Just because.

Ohh the snot has caked against my pants
It has turned into crystal
There's a bluebird sitting on a branch
I guess I'll take my pistol
I've got it in my hand
Because he's on my land
