Real Men Don't Cry



Thinking of goodbyes with trepidation Nostalgia will come into play Remembering all the good times we had Right off from our very first day Gonna try real hard not to shed any tears Real men are not supposed to cry But my bladder is very close to my eyeballs Can't promise my eyes will stay dry The ladies will love it and think it's so sweet But the guys will chuckle and say Thought you were one of us macho men Now the real Jack is out on display Well whatever will be will be I'm afraid Or else it'll appear to be fake I can only be this dude that I am So drink up and have some more cake © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack... That was a great poem... We all have a sensitive side when parting from old friends... Dragon says he'll help you go visit them at any time... If I were you... I'd tell him you appreciate the offer... but...... He'd bring all those penguins he's baby sitting, you know... But they do know how to party and can cheer you up fast... Tho the house may never be the same again...LOL

    I disagree, Jack - real men should cry. Nice one. That house holds a lot of memories for you. If you want to, go ahead and cry. Will hear from you. Love ya, Toquyen
