A Bit Hokey



Methinks I'm overdoing these pep talks You people must be tired and bored I hereby announce, going back to the sillies Worry not, it's of my own accord A niche that's always been my cup of tea Poetry that includes lots of humour Get quite a kick out of making folks laugh Losing my smile's just a rumour So here we go, are you ready for this stuff I'm afraid it can get a bit hokey What did the water say to the cruise ship? Nothing, it just waved... okey-dokey Now wasn't that extremely thoughtful of me Coming up with this comedic gem I'm not just another pretty face you know I'm real kind and a genuine friend Are you ready to bust a gut laughing again Well maybe I'm exaggerating a bit Are you ready to pee in your pantaloons Oops sorry! No off colour quips I've always been known as a rebellious sort But I've tried hard to mend my ways So it's nothing but sillies from this day forward You can bet all your hard earned pay! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Never give up those rebellious ways and never surrender! I wrote and posted my Godzilla poem... Some action... more cute... Grandpa Troll is fussing at me about- wanting to go to the center of the earth, Now! But I'm looking for a little more crazy, first. Dragon wants to come with his rubber ducky. HMMM. Lolly is peaking from of the basement, urging me on. You can't hurry genius (That's you, not me) Need a few more days. Decisions, Decisions... U usually bring me idea gems. Yes, You! Really!

    FANTASTIC NEWS my dear Carol! Just sold our house after almost two years on the market. Why did it take so long you ask? It's in an adult lifestyle community (no kids) of 300 homes way out in the boonies. WHAT A RELIEF! Hugs dear lady... xoxoxox
