Mister Fancy Pants Poet



Well here I am in front of my Mac And it seems to be taunting me “C'mon big boy, show me your stuff! Mr. Fancy Pants Poet, let's see!” “What great stuff have you come up with now To set the literary world abuzz Mr. Fancy Pants Poet between you and me The world's not ready because” “Your poetic prowess is beyond the norm Your talents won't be surpassed Where did your poetic skills emanate from Were there poets in your family's past” “C'mon big boy, I'm sitting here waiting Got much better things to do Like figuring out the true meaning of life Or the sum of “two plus two!” Well here's what I say to you Mr. Mac Go byte yourself and leave me alone Creative minds don't have an on/off switch When I'm ready I'll send you a poem © Jack Ellison 2013

    Well with a computer using to negative reinforcement, putting peer pressure on you to write, no wonder you can write so well so often. Knew I should have abandoned PC years ago for mac, lol. This is very clever Jack, great work.

    LOL... One of your Best... Truly enjoyed this one... My muse is my Dragon and my Hubby giving me situations... or you in your poems... Then I ask... What would a totally self absorbed and crazy Dragon make of it... LOL... Yes, your often my muse... Like when you rang the Liberty Bell... and I wrote Fire and Brimstone... Yes... Jack...You do touch others lives... often... And yes Dragon... You ARE self absorbed... What do I mean? Silly Dragon! If you don't know by now... I doubt you ever will...

    This is one of your best writes my friend, I really loved it anyways! I'm impressed by the way you wrote of two distinctly different personalities...your extremely witty Mac computer with an attitude, and yourself, who is always witty and sprite! I really loved reading this elegant and lovely poem this morning! What a brilliant piece, such a tremendous poem, Great Work!!
