Looking for love is tricky business, like whipping a carousel horse. ~ George Cukor

His life’s a carousel, round and round it goes
No ups, no downs; nowhere his destination
A pointless voyage, to somewhere nobody knows
And in his grasp, a one-way ticket to oblivion
He wakens, the day’s a mirror of yesterday
Overcast the sky, morning till nightfall
A humdrum universe, monotonous in every way
Existence lackluster, no future he can call
Then SHE came,  now he's on a rollercoaster ride
Sun shines,  it's a clear day; and he's starry-eyed
