Wacko Jacko



Clear the track, here comes Jack Or Johnny Canuck to some To a bunch of friends on Poetry Soup He's that Wacko Jacko bum! He's Canadian eh! From way up north From the land of ice and snow He eats bowls of nails for breakfast Wearing manly lumberjack clothes “Good day eh! How's it goin' eh?” Are two of his favourite greets As he polishes off his morning brew With a slab of uncooked meat He's a tough old dude, that's for sure With mush instead of brains A grizzled good natured son of a gun With love running through his veins He'd give you the shirt right off his back But it's too damn cold up here For fear of freezing his nipples off Instead he's just say, “Wanna beer?” Clear the track, here comes Jack Or Johnny Canuck to some To a bunch of friends on Poetry Soup He's that Wacko Jacko bum! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Interesting perspective. You have a great self-image. It's nice to know that there are good people all over the world. Did you hear about the guy whose left side was paralyzed? He's all right!
