Laugh With Jack Number 4



You can't commit suicide by holding your breath Going to try it now my good friends If it works it's been great knowing you guys If my poe-m e-n-d-s h-e-r-e t-h-e-n-n-n-n-n . . . Don't panic people, still alive and kicking Just joshing and having some fun Macy's founders were passengers on the Titanic They weren't among the lucky ones There are 40,000 different species of spiders Stomp on as many as you can They're really good-for-nothing no-good-varmints They deserve to be squished out of hand Jellybeans contain crushed insect cocoons That gives them their special shine I'm never gonna eat another Jellybean again Don't have a problem with that, I'm fine Dairy cows apparently produce more milk When listening to Der Bingle It also encourages them dance a lot more With the farm hands, the ones that are single The insulting slang phrase “kiss my ass” Dates way back to 1705 Street talk was popular even way back then It's our duty to keep it alive © Jack Ellison 2013

    This is a fantastic and enlightening write my friend! I really liked that last stanza, I don't know that I can really believe it though...it seems a little too far fetched! But I do believe you though Jack, I trust that you are correct! What a wonderful piece this poem is! Great Work!!
