Is He Serious?

Most people do not know
Everyone is so confused
Not yours truly though
Always I stand excused
Come fire or even snow
He who lives abused
Eagerly looks high and low
Myself I just stand amused

Merely a flash a thought
Enters my overworked mind
Not thinking what I was taught
Don’t like knowledge of that kind
Especially when it is bought
Like a shopper’s gleeful find

Just want to do something new
Always in an innovative way
Careful not to copycat you
O to write an original screenplay
Be it false or maybe even true
So long as it ends in hooray
Of course you hold me a shrew
Nevertheless you can kiss my touché

Only screenplays have happy endings. Cheers to the raw chords you exposed.

everyone always thinks that they have the perfect balance, that they stand above the law, that they are difrnt that they know better.... and most of all.. .that they deserve a happy ending.

i think u misunderstood me -

"so long as it ends in hooray", refers to the crowds reaction to the "script" (life), not the ending of the script itself - that would be a bit naive (pompous?).

anon: have you never cheered after a great ending that was sad?

redhead: it's usually the other way around, but i'll take it.
