My Feet Show It



Some poets rhyme, some poets don't I prefer to write in rhyme A personal choice I've had from the start Quatrains are where I shine Tried some others, they're not for me Just a simple kind of a poet There's a rhyme that's been around forever With the words “my feet show it!” No Henry Wadsworth Longfellow am I But in my own inimitable way Manage to post some worthwhile poems That merit perusal each day Ever since discovering Poetry Soup Rhymes buzz around in my head Been thinking of joining Poets Anonymous But this addiction is nothing to dread Who knows, maybe one day I'll be famous Everyone will know my name They'll carve my image on old Mount Rushmore A symbol of worldwide fame Dream on my man, you're quite delusional Been into the sauce for sure Best that you go and lie down for a while Till you're thinking rational once more © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon agrees with "my feet show it". He paints his toe nails every day like a rainbow with nail polish. Says he wants to put his best feet forward. He's going to need a job to pay for so much polish when Joey's Girlfriend goes back to school. I told him a paint store would work better He says he gets a better shine from polish...LOL... Dragon says we should thank you for letting us have so much fun. Your the only one we play with. Sure he'll be polite for Trista... but not me! Silly Dragon!!
