A carefree poem about being carefree.
Mellow

I’m mellow

Like a cucumber
I’ll catch a scene and slice it clean
Lean and green

Organically serene

Skiddy-oo be-bop-a-do
Be-bop-a-do-de-da-la
Be-bop-a-do
Be-bop-a-do-de-la-la

And if a tornado comes
It won’t bother me none
But pass me on by
With its head in the sky

Tra-la-la-di-da
La-di-da

Say hello to the cucumber storm
Give a smile to the surrounding norm
Threatening with bore to ruin your play

But say ‘good day’ and walk away

Roo-pa-do-pa-de

Then the buzzing bee
The yew tree
The quarrelling squirrels
With their red-grey war

But wave a paw and say no more

Skiddy-uden-duden
Skiddy-uden-duden-duden-do

Life is a game
But playing is no fun
As the harder you try, the harder the rules become

Beep-a-deep-di-do
Bi-do-di-do

So to please oneself is the sole aim
To block all pain
And meet with endless gain
And heavenly hedonism, all the way

Zip-a-de-do-da
Zip-a-de-day
