Nine Sisters An Me, Ole

One and one doesn't always make two Not in our house anyway One and one made ten sweet offsprings Nine sisters and me, olé! Spoiled? You certainly can believe it But lovable just the same The makings of a girl's baseball team And a mascot with the same last name We were all very far apart in age Though fame awaited us guys But now there's only one sister left An opportunity has passed us by Very sad but perhaps way up yonder We'll earn great fortune and fame Known to all as the Felines Plus One A symbol of a wonderful game © Jack Ellison 2012

    Well, I think though the fans cheer and love their team; The fans adore the mascot. Keep up the good work.

    Enjoyed your poem. Big families are grand. I came from a family of nine. My twin and I right in the middle of the bunch. Thanks for sharing your poem.

    They don't make families like they used to, eh! Mine was quite spread out in age! Can only remember 4 sisters living at home though! Hugs, Jack

    A big family but quite spread out in age. I was the last born and seven years younger than my youngest sister! My Dad just never gave up until he got a son! LOL Cheers, Jack
