Did You Know



Humans blink over ten million times Each and every year of their lives So keep those eyelids watered real good Sad movies will get rid of dry eyes Not being married can shorten a man's life By maybe ten years or more Being married can also shorten a man's life By twenty years, I'm pretty sure The most used expression in any language Is the positive and upbeat “OK” Standing on top of a mountain you can see A lit match 50 miles away Ants will stretch when waking each morning Like sneezing, it feels so damn good Camel's three eyelids protect them from sand They should think of wearing a hood Some scientists say that the higher your IQ The more you will dream at night Yours truly even dreams throughout the day Bumping into things gives me a fright The average iceberg weighs 20 million tons What kind of a scale do they use Urged my large friend to maybe investigate It upset him and he vehemently refused Some people baptize their baby in beer Gives them a problem with booze Out of every pore in their overweight bodies The alcohol continues to ooze Camels can survive in the desert for 3 months Without water, now how bout that Of course a lot of them had to join AA Drinking beer out of very big vats The electric chair was invented by a dentist Why we try, their appointments, to miss Some lions mate more than fifty times a day And I was born a human, boo hiss! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Gee... when I look off a mountain to another mountain all I see is clouds... or that silly dragon puffing steam in front of my face. He is always wanting me to notice him... But that steam does keep me warm up there... So I just keep ignoring him... I'm so clever... LOL
