In order to be happy, you must write

In order to be happy, you must write,
On paper with a pen and bottled ink,
A hundred villanelles about your plight

If you use  thesauri, keep it tight,
For too much intellect will make men think
In order to be happy, you must write

Don’t use Latin phrases, just emote.
Here and there insert a proper link
To a hundred villanelles about your plight

Never check for errors what you wrote.
Wash your hair twice daily in green quink.
In order to be happy, you must  float

If you’re wise then soon you’ll see the Light.
Stare at it and ask it how it ranks
A hundred villanelles about your plight

Once I was  so fat, my hair was lank
It still is but I don’t care a plonk
In order to be funny, you must write,
A hundred villanelles and then take flight.
