Jack And Jillian



A modern nursery rhyme Jack and Jillian were sweethearts They lived on a midwestern farm Ravaged by drought one summer Lack of water sounded the alarm So they set out to fetch a bucket At a spring not too far from home Half mile down the road they traveled Came upon a hill they had known As they started up this familiar hill Jack lost his footing and fell down Jillian came tumbling after him They both had broken their crowns Jack got to his feet immediately Ran home as fast as he could caper Wrapped his head with a bandage Of vinegar and handy brown paper Moral of this modern nursery rhyme Never trust a fellow named Jack He'll love you and leave you stranded And probably never come back! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yes, Dragon... if you save fair maiden Jillian you'll be a true hero... But you've got to find her first... No you burned the map... No I won't buy you another... and no! It Won't tell you where fair maid Jillian is... There is no X marks the spot... Silly Dragon!

    Jillian is in an undisclosed location recuperating from her broken crown! If my sources find out where she is, we'll let Dragon know! Hugs, Jacko xoxox
