Silliness Revisited



An army of mites reside in our lashes With mouths and tiny claws Along the road to human evolution This was surely a major flaw Astronauts strangely can't burp in space What useless dribble is that Felines can have over one hundred kittens Now that's one pooped out cat Some atheists put up Christmas trees An identity crisis for sure A cow can poop up to four tons a year That's sure a big batch of manure A woman once had sixty-nine children Talk about barefoot and pregnant With a dirty big bunch of kiddies like that She could hold her own beauty pageant Nose prints are used to identify dogs Imagine if they used those for humans Especially during the influenza season... yuk! There'd be snot all over the policeman The salary of Toto in “The Wizard Of Oz” Was a hundred twenty dollars a week That's a hundred and twenty dollars more than me Since retiring my new job is sleep The tallest people in the world are the Dutch Must duck underneath the windmills While kissing, most tilt their head to the right But there's some who rub noses still © Jack Ellison 2012

    Enjoyed reading your poetry today. (in St. Louis). Yes, I'm back home... And enjoying your work again... Just go to show... Not only is your work time less, and priceless... it works any where too.

    Lol, where did you get all this stuff? Very interesting, Jack. That one woman with sixty nine children must be one sore lady! Too funny :)
