Ephraim Crud



My old pal from another site Contacted me today He wondered where I'd gotten to Wondered where I'd strayed Quite a catchy monicker eh? Grabbed your attention I bet He's way out there in the outer limits Hit it off as soon as we met Looks like he might be joining us Here on Poetry Soup A great addition but please beware He often uses the word poop So join me in a big hearty welcome To my good friend Ephraim Crud I know you're going to love this guy So send him a big verbal hug © Jack Ellison 2013

    Good one, Jack. I have to agree with everything you said about Ephraim in this well-written piece. He's certainly my fave poet of all times. I can't wait to read about the hilarious Wapping Street lot again. A genius poet with a unique style for sure. :):):)

    So you're an ex-FanStory friend too! Are you still a member there? I find P-Soup less competitive... anyway, it was time for a change after 3 years! Now about our mutual friend Ephraim, isn't he a hoot! He certainly has a style all his own! LOL Big hugs, Jack xox
