Ode to Happiness
 
 
Some say they think it's right
For folks to be happy,
That in fact they should be happy.
 
Well, some do find a reason for happiness
from the set of possibilities
provided by current reality,
 
But others see a potential happiness
from the set of possibilities
that are not yet provided by reality.
 
The first group is lucky, I guess.
Such folk say to the second group, "You are unrealistic."
And, "You should be happy."
 
The second group helplessly shrugs.
They detest the first group.
 
The second group changes the world.
