Poppa Jack



In our close circle of friends and family I've been known as old Poppa Jack Really like it, I can feel all the love What I give comes bouncing right back Always been known to love the whole world Enemies? Not a single darn soul Some people I like a bit more than others They're in the minority on the whole There's nobody I'd really classify as someone I wouldn't spend time with, by crikey Or give pretty ladies a sweet tender hug That person's never entered my psyche So here's this old guy baring his soul For the world to see and to know My inner workings are still working fine The secret? Just let it all flow Here's old Poppa Jack signing off for now With a dirty big smackeroonie For all my multitude of friends and family Whose love is so precious to me © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon got everyone into a circle holding hands and singing. Dragon told them stories from Poppa Jack from long... long... ago... Hey Dragon you're only a little over 2 years old... It's not that long ago... Silly Dragon... Tho time tends to be relevant to his own perspective. He's turning into a great story teller and should be ready for the Fall and Halloween camp fires. However I've noticed he changed ALL of the facts, and he's always the Hero... Who would have thunk it... Duh! Dragon... LOL
