Trivial Pursuit Of Happiness Hurts

I once knew a person
Named Ophelia
She worked for United Airlines
She was a stewardess
Or a flight attendant
She was many different
People at the same time

Ophelia get me to a nunnery
I’m an unruly poet
Writing nonsense like:

“naked and afraid
up all night
weep all day
Big Brother said
Kilroy was here
watching Big Brother
man versus food
man versus nature
man versus man
god versus god
good versus evil
poet versus poet
verse chorus verse”

To be or not to be Ophelia
A stewardess or a flight attendant
There’s no question
Our trivial pursuit of happiness hurts
