Standup for Jack

Good old Jack wants more poems that are funny
With some humor I might make some money

I could do standup make them all chuckle
Wear a cowboy hat and a big buckle

My jokes might be lame, my spirits may sink
I'll get more funny, once they start to drink

I'd talk bout the country, home on the range
maybe bout my horse, perhaps that is strange

Some cowboy Karaoke might do the trick
If only I could sing they may not get sick

I will give it a try for my good friend Jack
It won't last very long so I will be back

Dedicated to Jack Ellison.

    Well if you sing poorly enough, maybe he'll laugh anyway. I could almost envision that. Actually he'd probably cheer and you'd never know. I'm glad someone else has also chosen to write funny stuff for the first part of the day anyway.
