Jack The Quack



Timothy Hicks recently suggested I write one called “Jack the Quack” Who better than the quacker himself Who's wheels have left the track I've never professed to be poet In the ilk of Browning and Keats A rebel, a renegade, a enigma of sorts Marching to a different beat A bit of a “quacker” I've always been Take pride in being off beat Don't have a choice, it's who I am Travelling down a different street Always write in the purest of forms Simple quatrains most of the time Since a very young age, always thought Of poetry as a needing to rhyme Forever been one to revel in creativity Searching brand new vistas each day It sure turns my crank and floats my boat Wouldn't be happy any other way Thank you Timothy for the inspiration To express what makes me tick We're all cut from the very same cloth Till we find a pathway that clicks © Jack Ellison 2013 Timothy suggested I write this one appealing to the kiddies along the lines of "Howard The Mallard"... I chose a different route!

    Jack, I'm so delighted to see that you've taken my suggestion and that my tiny minuscule comment inspired you! Always be yourself... that's the best anyone can do. No pretending when you get down to write... it's always exactly how you feel, it's awesome!

    We're cut from the same cloth? What does yours look like? Can I have one too? My Trolls just perked up their ears... I think they'll want to come looking, too... Is it pretty? I bet Cathie made it real pretty one for you... Can she make one for me? I sew awfully... Having fun here... That's probably why they all run... Naw... I'm just too loveable... My shinging light hurts their eyes... LOL
