Ice Cream For Seniors



Got an ice cream cone in one hand While typing with the other Why does ice cream make us seniors Keep on begging for another! Isn't ice cream only for kiddies? Wow! That's surely not the case Seen old folks down a chocolate sundae Beg for more with a messy face! Maybe it makes us feel younger Or it's simply just a treat As we lick away like a spaniel A sensation that can't be beat! Not shy about our craving We'd fight for another scoop There's other ways to try it Imagine ice cream in vegetable soup? So stay away from old folks When they're lining up for some They'll push and shove and step on you For a scoop of butterscotch rum! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Wow, yes, the older you get the more you love ice-cream...it's a mathematical fascination...exponentially shown! I believe you as I love ice-cream a lot more than I did when I was younger! This is an outstanding and magnificent poem Jack! What a powerful message of truth! Great Work!!

    Ice cream is my passion... My puppy's will run me over if I don't give them their share in a hurry. Yum! Yum! PS. My Trolls are interested in becoming techs... I'm afraid to see what they will do... There they go... taking my vacuum apart again... Gotta go!

    Lol, I'd be staying away from that line. Don't want to be run over :). Ice cream is so good in the summer time. Any time I guess. My favorite place to have ice cream is Braum's. And I would have a banana split. It's heavenly. I am surprised to hear that seniors still enjoy ice cream. I thought they would grow out of it :). Cute one, Jack. Enjoyed!

    Ice cream is one of the staples in my diet! Cathie is even more addicted than I am! LOL We don't have a Braum's up here! Here it's Baskin Robbins! Same stuff different name... hugs, Jack xox
