“Only vegetables are happy”

William Faulkner wrote “People need trouble – A little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it. Artist do… only vegetables are happy.”

I thought about the last sentence in that quote and it served as inspiration for the following silly poem.

Only vegetables are happy.

I wondered, how would they know.

For that matter, how would we know?

How would it show?

Would cucumbers be sweeter somehow?

Is broccoli more pleased

simply by being greener?

Frankly, I don’t really care

if vegetables are happy or not.

l happen to love the lot.

So for the record

I write and am happy most of the time;

especially when my vegetables are roasted in a kabob, or

sprinkled with a little salt and pepper or simply stirred fried.
