Two Sides Of Jack



Most people have a second side A side that's not always sunny I have two sides like everyone else But my both sides are funny Haven't a clue how it happened My parents were normal folks Don't remember them ever being silly Or even telling some jokes Sure glad I have this “silly” gene Life's a lot easier to endure Can't imagine waking up with a scowl Foreign to me for dang sure Guess I'm one of the lucky dudes Passing along just one thing Think of your life without any winter A life that's eternally spring That's how Jacko survives each day Pushing negatives off the cart It certainly ain't that damn difficult Think positive right from the start They say everyone has a second side Mine is giggles either way An example of a truly fortunate soul With laughter and fun every day! © Jack Ellison 2013

    The best kinda "bipolar" you can be. Live long and prosper in that eternal spring of yours... never know what's around the corner!

    Laugh is a cure and one should laugh as much as possible.

    Hi Jack; I like your new picture. I also like your poem. It is better to go through life with a happy face than to wear a frown all day. Take care and God bless you. Lucilla

    Your two sides, the Jack of Hearts, and the High Joker, lol, card humor. I am almost one sided, but I try to keep my personality and communication mostly sunny. BTW<-- (no more pretty words), you can quote me on my former comment, but then they'd probably laugh at both of us lol. Great work amigo, BUEN TRABAJO.

    Boy I wish I was you...One sides just plain crazy and the other is a pooped out from chasing after the crazy one... My Hubby and my meds are always attempting to keep me somewhere in between... But that's no fun! Besides how am I going to keep that dragon away from my garden without a little crazy... Snicker... LOL

    This is an awesome and delightful write my friend! You have amazed me with this amazing poem Jack! I know I have a funny side as well, maybe not two funny sides as you have, but I certainly have one of the two funny! The other side is romantic and poetic, I guess sometimes funny poems do come through so it could be said I have sort of two funny sides...to some extent! I truly loved reading this fantastic poem this morning! What a remarkable piece, you have brought humor to my day! Great Work!!

    You never fail me my good friend! To be totally honest, I exaggerated a wee bit! No one goes through life without SOME down times! But as people go and I include you, we're above average in the happiness department! Thanks once again, Russ!
