The Accolades Man



Is there anyone you know that writes reviews Like yours and my friend Russell The answer is no, not in this whole wide world He rises above all the bustle Such a very kind soul, my dear Mr. Sivey Must be made of something real special Just about the happiest dude that ever there was We all need a friend like Russell Something tells me he's had a real good life As he pours out his daily accolades Seems totally content within his own skin The epitome of a man self-made Totally look up to and appreciate dear Russell He's someone I'm honoured to know In this day and age of our “me first” generation A unique and a true loving soul Is there anyone you know that writes reviews Like yours and my friend Russell... Methinks not! © Jack Ellison 2013

    He writes reviews? Wow! When I get my little book done... Do you think he'll review mine? In any case, I'm going to read a few more of his... With a memory like mine, I need to be reminded each day... Except by Dragon... But not to worry... He NEVER lets me forget him! (I didn't tell him I have two poems about him in the works... He'd drive me crazy if he found out.) Here he comes... Quick! Look non chalant... Hi Dragon!... What do you mean I'm up to something... Really! Silly Dragon!
