a grand little ditty.

The question isn’t whether it’s true
The question–“Is it working for you?”
Marshmallow skies
And custardy pies
And nothing’s too hard to do
They’re five happy verses or so
They told me all I needed to know
Ignore all the rest
Trials and tests
And threats to my comfort zone
Well I’ve got no time to find out what’s real
I stick with what I happen to feel
It feels grand
When you’re livin’ in lala land
You can name a blessing yourself
Stake a claim on power and wealth
And strong healthy teethA spot at the beach
And romance that’s really swell
All the saints and martyrs alike
Well they would have called a national strike
Demanded less pain
More personal gain
If only they’d known their rights
Well I take it very personally
Yeah, I got to know what’s in it for me
Ain’t it grand?
When you’re livin’ in lala land
I’ve got my prayer cloth collection in a Jesus jar
I’ve got the Holy Ghost ridin’ in the back of my car
Sometimes He gives a little tickle I go “hardee har har”
Ain’t it grand, when you’re livin’ in lala land
My Jesus decal does quite a trick
Right above my dashboard I stick it
A good luck charmIt keeps me from harm
And saves me from speeding tickets
Well I take it very personally,
Yeah -I gotta know what’s in it for me
Ain’t it grand, When you’re livin’ in lala land.

I thought this was a great little poem in light of what we see and do around here.
