The Appeal Of A Moose



Thinking of girls in my life back then Searching for beauty was no use I'm sure one was from a horror movie She possessed the appeal of a moose! Promised I wouldn't mention names But her first initial was Thelma Had a huge wart on the tip of her nose Gorgeous? What can I tell ya! Let me explain 'bout that lovely schnoz It was as long as from here to Tuesday Protruding teeth, was missing a few Just a little off white... good news eh! Her eyes were kinda distracting too Each looked in a different directions Hair was stringy and different lengths Blue lipstick... a very bad selection! So all in all, I guess you might say Not one of your ravishing beauties Body odour like that of a koala But as far as I could tell, no cooties! Had some redeeming features though She possessed a heart of pure gold Would donate the shirt right off her back Problem was it was smelly and old! Sure could pick 'em way back when Her daddy was worth a few million So to me, Thelma was a raving beauty Now my wife and I'm worth gazillions! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Captivating as always, Jack. I love how you use poetry to relate the story in such an inviting way, the words, the tone, the rhythm, all very well done and nicely fitting. Well penned.

    Ahhh... I've a face made for radio... Understand completely... Loved this one.. Lol... My son only picks the hotties... But they're eccentric in what they eat... Most are not only vegetarians but all the way to vegans... They say he's continually cheating on being a vegan(No meat, no eggs, no milk)... Apparently, he still has SOME smarts left... But not much... Taco Bell is sooo not vegan... His favorite place... Dragon's is barbecue... I'm classy... I go to McDonalds... The girls are horrified!
