Happiness

I ASKED the professors who teach the meaning of life to tell
Me what is happiness.
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of
Thousands of men.
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though
I was trying to fool with them
And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along
The Desplaines river
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with
Their women and children
And a keg of beer and an
Accordion.
