28,510 Days



28,510 days I have lived on this Planet Earth And at some point during each of those days It was given over to mirth Guess you could say I'm a contented person With more than my share of happy Why me? I have often asked How come I'm so slap happy Is it just a roll of the dice That determines which path we travel Or at some point do we look at things And say, in humour I'd like to dabble Whatever the reason, whatever the cause I've ended up sending out sillies Had more than my share of happiness stuff Guess that's why I'm a silly-billy 28,510 days That's a humongous amount of days But it's not a family record A sister lived 34,310, aren't you amazed? © Jack Ellison 2013
