A Funny Thing Happened On My Way To The Soup



A funny thing happened on the way to the Soup Was accosted by a young girlie with a sign A sign that read “WE WANT MORE GIGGLES” And Jester Jack's our fellow of rhyme Jester Jack's been missing for quite a while now He's been writing bout mushy love stuff Don't know what's come over this dear fellow Of his funnies, we can't get enough It's just a phase old Jack's going through Maybe thinks his number's almost up Naw that can't be it, this guy's fit as a fiddle He's still as spry as a young pup So for those who are patiently waiting for fun Jester Jack promises giggles real soon Getting back to his roots that's where he's heading Won't be too long so y'all stay tuned A funny thing happened on the way to the Soup © Jack Ellison 2013

    You are quite the hilarious character my friend, I love how you write a poem about how you will be writing a poem with humor! That is truly fantastic Jack! You are a unique individual and I love it that way, you are the best at cheering me up whenever I need it! And lately I've needed a cheering up, just a little down that's all...I think I need more of the Soup, and your poetry!! I really enjoyed reading this enjoyable piece this evening! Great Work!!

    Jester Jack is Dragon's favorite read... tho the other Jack had him giving Dogasaurus a bouquet of my roses yesterday... You never know what Jack or Dragon are going to do next... Think I'll get my morning coffee, then sit back and relax... and watch... and read... and watch some more... LOL... What a life!
