Laissez Faire

A certain je ne sais quoi
about the Big Easy
makes sure that life
is light and breezy.
The people, the music,
the culture, the food,
all make it hard for even
the darkest heart to brood.

How you doin’?
Where you from?
Everyone comes together,
each part totaling the sum.
The city never sleeps;
its heart forever beats
to the sound of the drums
playing in the streets.
