“Happy Little French Song”

This should keep them happy
for a while
turn the radio
to gently tottering vocals
can’t understand the lyrics
but her voice is pretty
so who cares
that the world is burning
it always was
why should today
be different
who cares
that we’re dying
it’s what we do
every day
So instead of drowning
in misanthropy
I think today I’ll let them
have a happy little french song
and maybe
someone will smile
