Oops A Daisy



"Eeny, meany, miney, moe" "We all fall down and go boom" "Oops a daisy" and "Shake a leg" And my favourite, "Silly baboon" Heard 'em all a million times Oh to go back to those days Just to experience the fun again The simple games we played Not a solitary care in the world We'd come in for lunch and dinner Then off we'd go exploring again After all, we were just beginners Experiencing things every day Like skipping rocks on the pond The joys of the world around us It was like waving a magic wand Too bad we all have to grow up Do serious adult like things I'd much rather travel back in time And jump and skip and sing © Jack Ellison 2014

    Jack, who says we can't.. The child within is dying to get out. I let mine and boy is it great. Got to go play kick the can!!

    I think I'll travel back in time with you Jack! Never will today's children enjoy life like we lived it. Those days will never come back. The richer we get, the poorer we'll become. Have a nice day my friend. // paul

    Sadly Jack its now click click click on computer games - no wonder children's health is affected because they rarely see the light of day. So glad I grew up when i did and not now :-) Hugs jan xxx

    Found out why Dragon was watching TV instead of going to the store. He discovered something New, to him. Seems there's a purple Dinosaur named Barney on TV... (I thought he was gone years ago.) And Dragon is jealous with a capital J. He has purple Dinosaur envy. Yes, he wants to be on TV TOO! It's not enough that he's been in the Plays in the park, in my poems. And of course, he wants it now!... What is that you say about childhood being so care free? You didn't have a Dragon... Did you? LOL...
