A Lady From Shoals

There once was a lady from Shoals Tenderly tending to her foals Uttered, “What's that I hear? Another post, oh dear No way to keep up with Jack's goals! Yup! She's referring to happy Jackers Churning out poems he's a cracker Really loves what he writes But she has quite a plight She needs more sleep in the sacker She tries catching up with reviews Informing young Jack of her views “Will you not write so fast My computer won't last And I need a chance for a snooze” There once was a lady from Shoals Loved Jackers heart and soul Was his bestest friend ever Thought his writing was clever To please her was his ultimate goal © Jack Ellison 2012

    Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!... And so poetic... really cool piece... Have you read John Wulf's lately... They're far deeper than before... not for the laughs but tremendous works...
