Happiness

Happiness

A Poem by Shy Joe

hide and seek
your favorite little game
yes I will play
it's what we do everyday

are you in the whiskey
that would be nifty
no, boy you're shifty
I'll find you

hiding in those pills
sitting there all chill
xanax dancing thrill
no, I'm gonna get you

thesaurus hiding funky monkey
are you here wonky word junky
jungle gym typing humpty dumpty
no, thought I would surely find you

in these words

marco...marco...

golly gee wiz you win again
covered my eyes, counted to ten
I even checked the local LPN
no, tomorrow could you let me win

that would be nice, every now and then

What does this mean? I want to take it literally as a game of hide and seek, though I'm ambivalent whether it has a deeper meaning to it. Let me know because I would really like to understand.

I really like the rhyme scheme you have in this poem or "chapter", because I have trouble making piece in which the rhyme is kept all the way.
