Topsy-Turvy



Imagine if everything was topsy-turvy The sky was a bright yellow green Grass was a deep shade of crimson The strangest darn sight you've seen People walking around upside down No need for wearing shoes Six foot birds with smelly breath A dog with a very loud mew It sure would seem like a funny world If all the pigs wore pants An elephant doing a pirouette Even crocodiles doing a dance You'd eat some meat for a midnight snack For the main course only good stuff Like some apple right-side-up cake Which you could always get enough What a topsy-turvy world it would be If you greeted friends with “good-bye” Total confusion would surely reign Happy things would make you cry © Jack Ellison 2013

    Great wit and clever write Jack-- Topsy- Turvy is often the order of the day when it comes to human behavior :) This reminds me of the poem I posted a while back called "Oceans Odd Overtures"-- also everything back-to-front.

    haha This brightens my day... would be especially awesome if desserts had no calories, and chocolate was good for you. Happy things do make me cry sometimes, so that's already kind of topsy-turvy lol .Cute poem, Jack, hello... :)

    Hmmm desserts with no calories!!! Hate to admit it but sometimes my eyeballs are too close to my bladder! What a wimp eh! Big hugs to you sweet Becca xoxox
