Musical Emissions



Silly thoughts are filling my head It's happening more often of late Do you think I'm starting to lose it Do all seniors suffer this fate Nobody told me when I was young That our mental capacities decline To where we can't remember our name Or can't do two things at a time A sad ending to a productive life Brimming with many successes Not really how I thought it would end Farting and making big messes Guess we just need to laugh at it all It's a part of the human condition We really don't have much of a choice So take pride in your musical emissions Silly thoughts are filling my head It's happening more often of late Is this how my life is going to wind up Do all seniors suffer this fate © Jack Ellison 2013

    My Hubby's an orchestra. He has the high tweets and he has the low tweets...And the run for your life tweets... Not to mention the quiet tweets that make the animals run for THEIR lives... LOL

    If we two got together, we could be the next musical sensations to hit the charts. Ask him when can we get together for our first rehearsal! Those quiet ones are deadly... mine have been known to cause the evacuation of small towns! xoxox

    Ha ha, LOL your write is hilarious my friend! I'm late at getting to my readings this morning, actually now its afternoon! I know of your musical emissions, I hate to say it but I even have that! It's embarrassing too to have a bout of this kind of music happen! But it makes great poetry Jack, it sure does! (By the way this doesn't happen that often!) Ha ha, what an entertaining piece my friend, I truly loved reading it this afternoon, Excellent Work!!

    On this life style change I'm on, one of the major changes I made was to eliminate sugar. I've replaced it with an "expensive" substitute called "Xylotol", made from plant in South America. Identical in sweetness and appearance to sugar but without the nasty side effects. One down side... MAJOR MUSICAL EMISSIONS!!! LOL

    hahaha. Only you could make fun of old-age limitations and get away with it. With a brain that sharp you're a far way off yet. Entertaining read, Jack. :)

    Funny, when you finally reach it, you don't feel the least bit different than you have all your life! Age is only a number... it's your outlook on life that's the key! Mine's a shiny one! Hugs xoxox
