Being Happy May Not Make You Popular: A Humorous Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


People diagnose you with brain tumor

if you happen to laugh and joke a lot

showing off your sense of humor

dropping issues on the spot.

No one seems to like the whiner

and happy dude is liked even less

while forgiven for a joke if a one-liner

but a long cheering just triggers a stress.

Your best bet is to always be "cool"

something between hot and pissed

otherwise you are named a silly fool

from every group promptly dismissed.

Even being weird is somehow tolerated

there are so many to be seen around

whistle a lot and you won't be hated

or produce any other crazy sound.

But whatever your image may be

don't take a risk of appearing happy

suppress laughter and mask your glee

if you don't want your reputation crappy.
