A Cuckoo Kangaroo

Have you ever seen a kangaroo Who's a little bit off his noodle He hops around like a crazy galoot Who's lost his kit and caboodle Sometimes barks like a little doggy And chases cars and trucks At times he meows like a *****cat Or sometimes quacks like a duck Once got amorous with a moo cow Outcome could've been disastrous Luckily came to his senses in time Almost had our first kangcowrous They're treating him for psychosis It's costing him a bunch of dough Maybe he'll act like a kangaroo again For his sake, we sure hope it's so There's a moral here, it's very simple It's about knowing who you are Being happy within the skin you're in And not coveting another star! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hey Jack, I like what Donna said about starting a book...I believe you could create a great children's book of awesome poetry my friend! This creative piece would be a perfect entry into this book! You have written a tremendous poem here my friend, I really enjoyed reading it this afternoon! Great Work!!

    I guess it's a program that automatically edits any words of a sexual nature... but this is ridiculous! The word they blocked was "pussycat"... something needs to done to avoid this happening! As always thanks for your support and especially your suggestion to compiles a children's book... may do it some day! Cheers, Jack

    I don't know Jack...My philosophy is if you can't beat em... join em... I now have Closet Trolls I will be writting about... That's pretty bad when you can't win against a little Closet Troll... THey won't give me my shoes back! LOL
