Consuela's smile

with all hell breaking loose
everyday everywhere
we could sure use more
of the contagious smile
of one Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock,
which reportedly
can banish your blues
even though she seldom
offers any clues
as to how she's doing inside;
she's like your
favorite carnival ride:
you just sit there,
thrilled, but
at exactly what
just happened;
all you ever know for sure
is that somehow
being around her
makes you feel better inside.
