“All are happy”
The man was thinking
“Everyone is zappy
I am the one sinking.
Why am I set, Oh! God
For this weariness and pain?
All are without trouble let
Away from any strain! ”
God held his hand and lead him
To a man in contemplation, deep
Who was sitting, sadly grim
And let him, into his heart, peep.
The man was scheming full
To murder his wife
Who was to him unfaithful
And quell the rife.
God then lead him to the doorsill
Of a handsome boy planning
Suicide – himself to kill
With his love withering.
The man best understood
All were in more suffering
He was the one to brood
Now he is happy and veering.
