It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub, and Lillian encourages us to create a 44-word poem using some form of the word ‘Happiness’.
(I’m counting all my hyphenates as single words…)
I have lived in the underground before, but
it was only the ‘fallen-off-the-grid’ underground.
It was the ‘nothing’s-worth-paying-attention-to-anyway’;
the ‘no-one-really-gives-a-damn’ underground.
I thought I was happy then,
and I guess I was, but…
This time, things are different. This time
the underground’s much smaller.
