Basketball Brain



Imagine if I possessed stunning good looks Along with an adorable personality I'd have to beat the ladies off with a stick Love it if this was suddenly reality Hollywood would continually be bugging me To make millions from my glorious kisser Certainly be renowned the whole world over But dear Cathie, I'd surely miss her I'd send for her as soon as I bought a mansion Overlooking the beautiful blue sea Would say farewell to my bevy of beauties So honoured to have had a piece of me This new cyber world allows for such musing I could actually be of the opposite sex Now I've really got you wondering haven't I So you never know what to expect Well I must confess I'm a ten year old genius With a brain the size of a basketball Eat gigabytes of data, morning, noon and night And spit out gobs of wisdom to all Imagine if I possessed stunning good looks Dream on you old geezer, dream on A major overhaul would certainly be necessary And I don't think you've got that long © Jack Ellison 2013

    No basketball playing gigabyte kid can compare with your imagination... But I don't think Cathie will like being left behind... even for a little while... Bad boy...bad boy... I can tell spring is in the air. The birds started singing earlier this week... And mostly your poem is positively bubbling with energy... yep... spring does that to us... LOL

    I don't believe you when you say that you don't have those charming good looks my friend! I'm sure you look excellent...your personality shines so much that it doesn't matter if you do have a few flaws...that's what makes you unique, that's what makes you you! I loved reading this incredible poem this morning Jack! You sure are creative my friend! What a delightful piece, Awesome Work!!
