Bombs Away



Sure looks like a bomb went off In our beautiful new abode Haven't seen Curtis the cat for a week Might be in the rafters I'm told Never knew what exhaustion meant Till moving a fridge and a stove After 8 long years in our present location It's a hoarders treasure trove A treasure trove of stuff not seen Since Hector was just a pup Stuff we don't have any use for now Like our first born's sippy cup Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset Our new abode is “da bomb” Maybe we'll borrow a ruddy bulldozer And start all over at dawn © Jack Ellison 2013

    Happy Canada Day! Curtis.will come down when he's ready. Don't do too much at once. It'll be there tomorrow. The penguins have had a good affect on Dragon. He's teaching them synchromized swimming. They look so cute with all their butts in the air together.. .And Dragon and I aren't in time out while enjoying the lake. Amazing! I wonder how long that will last? Dragon don't sit on that chair! It's my favorite! You're too heavy... Your's is over there. CRUNCH! Here we go again. Spoke too soon...

    I know the chaos of moving my friend, we have moved a couple of times, it isn't much fun...you do see how much junk you have when you move! Did you notice how much stuff you truly had? I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this morning! What a tremendous piece jack, Great Work!!
