So, I had this idea, and I don't think I could make it into an actual poem myself, but I thought it would make a good thread.

Take an animal (it started when I heard some mourning doves), ask it a question (I asked--wait for it--WHAT IT WAS MOURNING! How original.) and then add rhyme.

I'll start. (Well, duh.)
"Whatcha mournin', Mournin' Dove?"
"Sally Sue has lost her glove."

"Why ya yowlin', alley cat?"
"My poor tail got squished by a bat."
And so on, in the style of a children's book. XD
"Ok, Lolpup. You can be a girl worth fighting for."

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
