Happiness Levelled

We will promptly
re-settle at 7/10 –
after that burst of
short-term delight
within swift gains
of lottery prizes &
oh-fantastic fucks
We will drop from
our 10/10 heights
to an unstoppable
senescence – sins
& timings conspire
to keep us [almost]
at eight’s euphoria
But not any higher
This is our ranking
of [real] happiness
