Poetry Break: Smiles

You've all heard of today's on-campus, politically motivated 'snowflakes'? Well, I'm not even thinking about those snowflakes, but about smiles that can melt away if not encouraged. Here's some encouragement, I hope:
The longest word, they say, is smiles
Because it goes on for a mile
From "s" to "s" to make that smile.

Though I agree the word is smiles,
This longest word goes on for miles
To spell an extra-special smile!
Not much of a 'camera' took this smiling image, more of a 'camera obscura,' but this smiley face will have to play the role of the fragile smile.

You see? I can be silly, too.

You might consider writing more of these happy, "feel good" poems. There is probably a big market out there.

Pig market!? Well, let me tell you . . . wait . . . oh, a big market. Never mind.
