Our Man Drake



There's a guy on the Soup His name is Drake A very talented soul His comments on my poems Are like no other Cherished as pieces of gold A writer like Drake To appreciate my stuff Is a feather in my old chapeau I'm overwhelmed and Deeply honoured More than you'll ever know It seems there's a bond Many writers have Certainly ain't like no other So I say to you My good buddy Drake Honoured to call you brother A connection's been made Strong and alive Creative souls that we are Each with our own Approach to our craft Hitched to a different star! There's a guy on the Soup His name of Drake A very talented soul Make sure you check out His creative works His craft is a joy to behold © Jack Ellison 2013

    You might say everyone who reads our work and keeps coming back are all hitched to a different star... Some where between HuH? and OH Oh! Dragon wants me to look up Drakes work... OK Dragon... Now?... Can't I finish this first?... Such impatience... Honestly!... LOL

    You have picked a very special man to write about, one that can bare his soul to everyone and write so beautifully! And on top of that he comments to many people with heartfelt comments that means a lot to that individual! Well your poem here Jack has described this generous man wonderfully as you have displayed great skill in your own talents my friend! What a brilliant piece, Great Work!!

    You know, I wake up this morning from a hurtful dream. Shortly after, I come on PS, read a few comments, then see your Soupmail about this. This dedication of yours has really offset that. I am deeply grateful. You're a playfully awesome writer & man on PS. You lead by example without even trying. Some desperately need a lesson from you in that. I look up to & admire that about you. Stay real. Change for nobody. You value how to "Do unto others". You have my friendship & respect, Jack. =D
