I'd Like To...

The world is not a happy place
We've let the morons rule our space
I'd like to teach the world to sing
A song that has a happy ring
With a chorus to drown what the morons say
A refrain so sweet to brighten the day.

  1. Bravo! Well said and I'm sure felt by many!

  2. Great job !

    Perfect harmony would be so wonderful if peace reigned over the whole starts with the individual and is taught at home first !

  3. What song would you pick for the world?

    I started out doing a poem, but it wasn't working for me.

    Good job!

  4. I complain about the silly songs that are sung out there, but they sure lighten the mood around our house.

  5. Love it!


    PS. I messed up on posting my link this week, so here it is:
    A Vocal Vocation

  6. First of all, love arms of an angel. I might just have to sit here till the song is finished. :)

    you and me have the same thing in mind today. Great job.

  7. Jeff,

    You struck a nerve with this little piece. When will sanity again rule the land?

    Peace, my Brother..........cj

  8. If only singing were like manna from heaven. Our souls would be sated by sweet music!~Ames

  9. brilliant! I would like that too!

  10. Jeff, you say it with such style!!!!

  11. We could all learn so much from you. Thanks, Jeff. This is beautiful.

  12. Jeff, you got inside my head with this. I feel that, too. The world feels unsettled and I feel like Chicken Little some days...waiting for the sky to fall!

    This was brilliant.

  13. Short and sweet, but packed with goodness right to the point of it all! Oh Yes! Thanks!

  14. Having been without "comcast" for 2 weeks, can honestly say the peace and quiet wasn't bad .... then the world was back in my face ... good job!! BUT it better be loud to drown all of them out!

  15. Beautiful verse, Jeff! Perfect for the prompt, too.
    Your verse expresses perfectly, the thoughts that I tried to convey with my little prose-story. But your text says it better!

    Best wishes & hugs,
