Get A Little Yappy With Happy!

Happy is a word that gets thrown around a lot. Some seem dead set on making everyone hot to trot. They aren't happy unless all others are happy, which in turn makes them a little yappy. Anyway, for the a to z today we go the Happiness way.

Don't worry be happy.
Yeah, just sit back and have a nappy.
Being happy will pay the bills.
Happiness has some thrills.

Happiness isn't obtained through money.
What planet are you living on, honey?
Are you living in a cloud?
If so, damn you must be proud.

It may not bring happiness up the ying yang.
But when have you heard a rich person go, dang!
I wish I didn't have all this money,
I'm so sad that it just isn't funny.

Pffft give me a break.
What else can you bake?
Mud makes everyone happy?
My ocd may then get flappy.

Wealth, at least some, = health.
Can't get it with some happiness stealth.
Broke and broken don't mix,
Unless happiness is playing tricks.

Could love your job,
Even love old husband Bob.
But if you can't pay the rent.
You may not love that street corner tent.

Do what makes you happy.
That sounds so snappy.
Then the money will come.
I hope you have a rich mom.

Happiness is a blank slate.
To it everyone can relate.
It means the same to all.
Just read happy on the wall.

Pffft to that too.
Some people are happy sniffing glue.
Not that it is something you should do.
Some are happy cleaning the loo.

Happy = health, wealth, comfort and peace of mind.
All of them go together and form a bind.
Yes, you can be positive without all four.
But is positive the same as the happiness tour?

The cat will let you judge that, as it is different for every single world doormat. Step on in to each person's life and their happiness is different to what takes away the strife. But those that say money doesn't buy happiness at least in some way, already have their needed pay. Or they are just a liar passing gas. Not clogged with gas makes me a happy little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    Good thing money can't make you smile, Cat
    No Bora gold where your mat is at
    The poor say they don't need a buck
    Supposedly it doesn't bring us luck
    I'd love my job more if they paid me more
    No more IRS a-knockin' on my door
    Service my butt now where's that dough
    To make me happy just so you know
    My students say money doesn't make them happy too
    They pay 5000 buck a years to be at my shoe
    'Oh well, that doesn't count Mr Blue...
    We mean a big car and a golden Scooby Doo...'
    So there it is, Cat: no Bora Gold,
    No richest untold

      Mine was more like 10k at my bay

      Could have spent 100 bucks and went to some forging guy

  7. Cat hit the switch and made it bright
    Have to agree that he is right
    Happiness is a state of mind
    Many idiots there you also find

    If you have to worry about your bills
    It's impossible to find any extra thrills
    You say you're happy if you're broke
    Don't kid me, you're a joke

    I lived through a depression with FDR
    No money anywhere, so bizarre
    Did I see happy people with all of this strife
    Hell no, happiness waited till I became a rich wife

  53. If you don't have enough money to cover the bare basics, it's hard to be happy. It seems more and more that many people are working longer and longer and harder and harder for less and less. I'd like to try out being wealthy, so I could make an informed decision about whether or not money buys happiness. LOL!
    It doesn't take much to make me happy; but then, I have what I need and some more for some wants. Just keep me healthy! Without health, happiness is very difficult. Happy weekend, Pat!
