The Role Of A Jester



The role of a jester I readily accept It's part of my makeup I have no regrets I take on the role With gladness of heart My reason for being To me it's an art An art to perfect With each little rhyme Finding that word At the end of the line A line that produces A giggle or laugh Like a mouse making love To a lady giraffe Now see how you grinned And chuckled at that It's really quite simple When knowing the knack Start with some silliness And add the absurd Even join 'em together To form a new word Rewards for your efforts Are many my friend You'll make people happy Feel love without end © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon loves you and your poetry. Tho it does at times lead him astray. Thank goodness bears are no match for Dragons.I Apologozed to the bear for Dragons sudden appearance... That he took for a threat. Fortunately A day by our Lake in my comfy Chair with whatever he wanted to nibble on... And bear became more understanding. He said Dragon could hug him any time... No! Dragon!... WE Can Not Keep Him! He likes your penguins... TO EAT! Silly Dragon! Now Bear. Put that Penguin DOWN!... NOW! Sigh!
