Missing Bellies

“All Points Bulletin”... be on the lookout
For Jackers' rotund belly
It's been missing for almost six months now
Watch “Missing Bellies” on your telly

Wiggles and jiggles like a bowl full of Jelly
Bouncing up and down, side to side
Little kiddies are always bugging their Moms
To ask Mr. Jackers for a ride

It's just my way of describing the impact
Losing weight had on my psyche
Upbeat and ready to meet all life's challenges
Now wearing my hair all spiky

It surely can be a life changing experience
Walk around with a confident air
Tossing red roses to the curious onlookers
With a feeling of devil may care

Can imagine the mental picture you're having
Must be pretty strange I would guess
My life has become exciting once again
Next week I'm on 'Meet The Press'

“All Points Bulletin”... if you see Jackers' belly
Ignore it, he doesn't want it back
He's doing just fine but thanks anyway
He's finally on the right track

    I'll tell you a secret: women don't understand why men ABSOLUTELY want to lose ...and loose their teddy bear belly...(^_^)...But if you think it's right for you, then, enjoy your win; but I tell you, my friend: roses will still be roses, bellies or not bellies! Take care, Hanitra

    My friend, I am very impressed with your command of the English language. You write extremely well. Where did you learn it? I noticed you have just recently returned to the site... welcome back! Cheers!

    You are on a roll Jackers. As usual this was a lot of fun. Smiling cheek to cheek!

    Discovered that eliminating sugar in my coffee and cereal has made a major difference. Think I'll write a book! LOL
