Happiness Runs

Happiness runs in a circular motion

That is like a little boat upon the sea


This melody is employed on television these days in the service of the proposition that fruit flavored Cheerios are better than Froot Loops. I find this more than a little disconcerting.

It appears that Donovan is still alive.

I don't know whether that's encouraging or discouraging.

I realize this isn't great art that's being desecrated here, but come on. Is this what we've sunk to?

Thank you for the clarification, I find circular motions and little boats to be confusing metaphores. Next thing you know they'll be using Melanie lyrics to sell kippers! After a certain age we are supposed to ignore all these anyway and just eat our oatmeal like good old boys.
