There's Treasure Everywhere!

. . . as Calvin and Hobbes used to say—even down in the dumps. Today, a parody of the chorus to Brown and Henderson's Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries occurred to me, and the following is the beta. Lines 8-9 are just dummy lyrics at this point, and lines 4-5 need work, but the idea is sound, I think:

Life is just a cup of hemlock.
I'm very serious—
Life's deleterious.
Our hopes, our dreams are bound to lose,
When they run into crews of obscene snafus.
We're faced with what you'd call a grem-lock—
A gremlin traffic jam.
We tell Uncle Sam to get off our backs,
So what does he do? He raises our tax.
Yes, life is just a cup of hemlock;
Drink deep—and don't give a damn.
