Hands



If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute Trying to express what we say Sometimes words are just not enough We surely need some other way If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute Couldn't show our utter disgust About this or that about ying and yang About which politician you can't trust If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute Frustration would rear its old head Valium would surely be a drug of choice So we use the bad finger instead If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute No words are any clearer than this Talk to the hand 'cause the face ain't listening A sign you surely can't miss If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute Need to step back and take a deep breath There nothing that's really that important Sometimes I lose it I must confess © Jack Ellison 2013

    This is good Jack. Without hands - we wouldn't have one hand to wash the other, or both hands to wsh the face - we would be a mess. Thanks for sharing .... good night.... Lucy
