Your Resident Clown

I love to laugh no question bout that Clowning and being absurd D'ya hear the one bout a girl and a sailor Limericks got lotsa bad words How is laughter defined in the dictionary Beside it, there's a picture of Jack With a cute definition that reads like this Very nice but a bit outta whack Sure don't appreciate that nasty last line May not be an Einstein or a Gates But still have other redeeming factors Hot dogs? I can eat twenty-eight In our local community I'm surely loved They think there's nobody sweeter Ride a motorized cart round the stores Once maimed a Walmart greeter Bottom line is to this crazy nonsense No doubt I'm a fun loving jester But I can get quite belligerent at times And give you a very rude gesture © Jack Ellison 2012

    Just to let you know, she's recovered completely and we've since become the greatest of friends. She still has a limp though from her injuries! Hugs, Jack LOL

    The Walmart employee has since recovered and we've become very close friends! She comes over regularly and takes me for a walk stroll in my wheelchair! LOL

    On the heals of what I just wrote this is perfect. Read my most recent poem addressed to you Jack. Have a great day my friend.

    You would write response here as a poem not under the comment section. It appears we already have an audience anticipating your thoughts. Should be a hoot.

    All you have to do is read and write a poetic response. Kind of a poetic conversation. I think it will be right up your alley.
