Barking Dogs And Screaming Kids

Barking dogs and screaming kids Can drive a person to drink There's nothing quite so disconcerting Worse than loud music methinks Hard to control a barking dog They'll bite you and rip off your leg Beating kiddies is wee bit extreme But it's fun watching them beg Go ahead whomp your child As long as you don't leave marks Strangling is definitely illegal though Welts are sometimes quite dark Betcha I'm gonna hear 'bout this 'Bout abusing li'l kids and all Really they're only minor injuries It's a blast to hear 'em bawl! Just kidding!!! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Nothing like a little morbid humor before curling in the blankets! Can you believe that it's 2 in the morning and I'm here browsing P-Soup? Going to bed would be the sensible thing to do, but whoever said I had much sense? It's nice to see the lighter side of this site by reading your quirky poems... it seems to balance all the solemn ones I typically read.

    Those late 2 a.m. nights are a thing of the past for me. Not by choice though... ye ole bod slows down much to my chagrin! "Quirky poems"... yeah! That's a great definition my friend! Could never put a label on it... thanks! LOL

    Now I'm scared you have become too crafty and have bawling grand children around and everyone has been fooled. Haha, I'm joking, well I think I am, lol. Nice write again Jack you never lose your touch. It's amazing the quality of your writing day to day.

    Wow, Jack, you sure have come out and written a spanking of a write(ha ha)! Yeah I know your kidding because I think I know you by really are a sweet old man who loves people and would give your shirt off your back to help someone in need...see I do know you don't I? This is an entertaining poem my friend! I enjoyed the noise you have created within this piece, I'm not one for noise either, and I'm not as old as you are Jack(not saying you are old my friend, just older)! Great Work!!
