Such Happy Thoughts

Poetry Selections -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."

It is amazing how optomistic all these poems were. I really didn't like any of them, probably for that reason. I'm not sure I found purpose in any. If everyone were all "happy as kings" then I'm not too sure anything would ever be done in the world. Never being satisfied is what drives people to do things, but that could a problem as well.

That's a really interesting insight. I think you are right in saying that the desire for something "better" is a key driving factor in today's society. However, I also agree with this poet because he is implying that people should be grateful for what they already have.
