Sanity Sucks!

Copyright ©1969 John Wm Beckner - All Rights Reserved

In a world of grown-up muck,
With brains a vibing, "Sanity sucks!"
I'd rather climb in trees so high,
And watch the fluffy clouds go by.

No more rules or boring math,
I'll paint rainbows in your bubble bath.
With cookies, unicorns, and trucks,
I'll prove to you, Paula, that sanity sucks!

So let's jump, skip, and play all day,
In our world of play and fray.
No worries, bills, or grown-up stuff,
Just laughter, games, and marshmallow fluff!


I’m unsure of the date, but either late 1968 or early 1969. We lived in Ft Knox, KY. Paula said she
was my “finance-a”, her way of saying fiancé. I was 9, she was 11. I always did go for the older
women. I called her my “Paula Bear”.
