Amazing Creatures



Normally I'm an upbeat and happy guy But some mornings start off wrong Bad words are spoken over things insignificant Instead of an upbeat song Why does that always have to be true Why can't we start with a kiss Instead of yaking and yelling at each other That we surely could miss It's definitely human nature my friends A fact that's most assuredly true In the heat of the moment we say hurtful things Till reason finally shines through Where would we be without this conflict It's ingrained in our very souls Not perfect but hey, as a species we're no bad Amazing creatures on the whole Look at all our technological advances Mind boggling to say the least So let us try hard to do our absolute best To live in harmony and peace © Jack Ellison 2013

    That's what I try to tell Dragon every day... Not to mention what Grandpa Troll tells us when we're in time out accross the lake from each other... But you know 'He always starts it first!' ... LOL
