"You look sad, my friend," she said to me,
"That will not do, that's no way to be!"
"Life is for living, joyously!"
She put a hand upon my knee.
"Jouously, you say?" I asked.
So sick of wearing happy masks.
"My friends are being blown apart."
"My sisters keep creating art,"
"Even though they're slowly starving,"
"Still, at that rock they keep on carving,"
"And my brothers still find time to sing,"
"Despite the bullets' vicious sting."
"For each has known a depth of feeling"
"That has no floor and has no ceiling"
"And can't be labeled joy or pain"
"And will view your horseshit with disdain."
"So, thank you for your sympathy,"
"But please fuck off with your way to be,"
"With the monotonous glee glee glee,"
"Such an insult to reality."
