Never know what's coming out of my mouth Was once in a store in Cape Cod Some lady clumsily knocked over a stand Blurted out, “Look what you've done, my god!” In an elevator in the heart of downtown Toronto A lady hit the button for the second floor I blurted out, “That's only one floor up,” “could've walked up and got there before!” Being a good sport, said “What! Burn a calorie?” “Are you outta your cotton-pickin' mind?” I thanked her and wished her a very good night Happy I didn't end up on my behind Never know what's coming out of my mouth Had a few not too pleasant adventures Like the time starting out a nervous young teller Said to a lady, “may I help you, SIR!” Really gotta learn to keep my trap shut Fortunate to have survived this long It's better to mumble and drool like an idiot Or dance and sing children's songs! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I'm not the most graceful person either when it comes to talking... Sometimes I feel like I can only way I can communicate coherently is when I write... Oddly though the fact I'm clumsy is one of the reasons people like me... Is that the same in your case? Keep on posting these stories man... They really cheer me up!

    YUP! Clumsy is good... "look at that sweet clumsy old man, ya gotta love him!" LOL Sometimes use it as a ploy but keep that a secret! :)

    My mouth keeps getting my garden pooped on by that dragon... My Dad keeps complaining till they kicked him once, out of the hospital... What's life without a little adventure...

    Ha ha, LOL...I can just hear you sing children's songs my friend! Or even dance them, ha ha, sorry I mean no offense, but from what I know of you...well actually now that I think about it some more, you might actually would do that! You are a very humble guy and you like to have fun, and this would be fun I bet! But it would still be funny to see you do that! Your poem is fabulous my friend, I really loved reading it this morning! Great Work!!
