Musings: Happyness, a House, and a Mouse

This is a supplementary page, for Happyness, a House, and a Mouse (September 12, 2010).


1. Happyness with a (wh)Y.

No more flowers to smell,
No more stories to tell,
Summers are on fire,
And winters are drier.
More tears coming out when people cry,
But I still have happyness with a Y.

No more food to eat,
No more flops on feet,
Flu is in the air,
And nobody to care,
People die of thirst and it's still getting dry,
And I still have happyness with a Y.

No more pure milk,
No more pure silk,
Adulteration everywhere,
Nothing is fair,
Fraud is spreading in open and no one is shy,
But I still have happyness with a Y.

No more barbie dolls,
No more cricket balls,
Less toys to play,
No moulding clay,
Just PC games where we kill or die,
But I have happyness with a Y.

No more bedtime books,
No more surprised looks,
Relatives are bore,
Officework is more,
Even the kids sleep without a lullaby,
But I have happyness with a Y.

But I am happy with a WHY???
Bloody WHY?????


2. In the House of my mind...

In the house of my mind,
I keep thinking of what
It would have been,
had I known you not.
The glorious times,
and wonderful days,
We shared together,
I will remember always.

In the house of my mind,
I keep thinking of how,
the world would be,
Few years from now.
Will there be trees,
or rainbows in sky,
Will there be shadows,
made by sun up high.

In the house of my mind,
I keep thinking when,
I will live my dream,
I have since I was ten.
Be famous and rich,
Have girls and cars,
and live life large,
Like the super stars.

In the house of my mind,
I keep thinking why,
I am so happy,
and so very high.
Is it you,
or is it your smile,
That makes living,
and my life worthwhile.


3. Computer Mouse

Click Click Click.. and I open the folder,
Click me again and delete files older,
Click me left or click me right,
Click me on an address to open a site.

Scroll me up or scroll me down,
You are my master, I am your clown,
Just one slide of finger is enough for me,
And I can also be set as button three.

Though I am your servant, I have a servant of my own,
Who does each and every command that I have thrown,
You move me around and on the screen it moves too,
The cursor follows all the commands given by you.
