Poet Laureate to America: Learn to Cook

Today's New York Times reports Charles Simic's advice for those looking to be happy.

In-Verse Thinking

Elsewhere in the paper, a book review excerpts bits by another poet laureate, Robert Pinsky:

At Robben Island the political prisoners studied.
They coined the motto Each one Teach one.

The Civic Poet

My mash-up of these two ideas renders thus: Happiness can be achieved by a consideration and a control of what we put into our pie-hole. Once that has been achieved, tell somebody about it.

Poet happy paper.
Lean happiness, teach happiness.
