Doggone Stunning Specimen

Okay friends now let's just see Do I have weaknesses of my own? Nope, after careful investigation I find I'm just perfect to the bone A doggone stunning specimen Of a homo sapien supreme With bulging muscles everywhere My tummy is tight and lean So muscle bound, can't even bend To tie my oversized shoes Haven't seen some parts of my body Since ninety-sixty-two What's my secret you may ask To my Greek Adonis form? I chew on nuts and alfalfa grass Celery and cobs of corn Not your cup of tea you say? So keep up your over stuffed ways Like the famous Goodyear blimp You'll go drifting off in the haze! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hmmmm, I dunno if you've looked in the mirror but I actually doubt you've described your form to a 'T' my friend, Ha Ha Ha! Don't worry, I'm not even close either, and none of my friends are nearly that way either! I'm sure you are closer to this level at being fit than I am! I really enjoyed reading this enlightening poem here this evening! What a lovely piece, Great Work!!

    I'm going to eat a burger in honor of this hilarious writing. With cheese & a Romaine Lettuce leaf for balancing of my chi. ;-)

    ENJOY!!! I only hope you could be as doggone stunning as this old dude but very few are! I'm being stared at wherever I go... hmmm... maybe it's because of the toilet paper stuck to my shoe trailing behind! LOL Have a great day my talented friend!

    Dragons laughing that I convinced you yesterday to become a Vegan.. You're missing the point Dragon,and no he doesn't want to date Joey. It's cool to be in good shape, especially at OUR age...But Jack... I did you one better this morning. I fell out of my computer chair (with wheels) when I leaned over to pet my dog... And no, I don't drink and DID already have my coffee... I'll never live this one down. LOL. As the old saying goes... Age, Can't live with it... and can't live without it!
