No News is Good News

What would make me happy? 

I guess it's simple enough

Write this poem slowly

Stop putting things off

Give my dog a bath

Read with my son

Play cards and fiddle with math

Sing a quiet song

Look into the future

And roll my eyes

See that in my nature

I no longer want malaise

I control my feelings

I know their needs

I know how often

They like jerking the wheel from me

So I'll start today with a poem

And a few pages of Mencken

Coffee and petting my dog

Looking forward to my vacation

I'll shut off my television

I won't even look in the papers to trash

Because by giving them my attention

I've been destroying the gifts I have

The key to a good life, as simply as any of us can put it.
