Chance Of Meatballs



“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” Now this one sure grabs your attention As movie titles go, this one's a hoot But that was the obvious intention Titles are always a very important part Of the success of every author If you simply called your poem, “A Poem” How many do you think would bother During my years as a graphic designer If there's one thing I found to be true Must grab your audience right off the bat The fight for recognition is a zoo Now if instead of “Chance of Meatballs” You used the term “Chance of Rain” What interest d'ya think that would create None, nil, nada, too tame The more outrageous, you increase the chance Of the fame to which you aspire So now you know, it's straight on to stardom But a piece of the action I require © Jack Ellison 2013

    So very true my friend, a title states a million things! I have some bad news, I might have prostate cancer! I have a tumor on my prostate and it could be malignant, we find out tomorrow! So think of me tomorrow when you are on the Soup and I am not here! I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this morning, a morning later than when you posted it! What a great piece! Awesome Work!!

    This is terrible news my very dear friend Russell. Hoping and praying it's NOT malignant! Thought there was something going on... you haven't been your usual happy upbeat self lately. Maybe you'll send me good news tomorrow! By coincidence, I have been experiencing prostate problems and about to get checked out. Again my best wishes go out to you in this difficult time! Your good friend, Jack

    Dragon and I Thank You for reading so many of our poems... But how did you find the time while writting these for today? You really grabbed every body's attention here... Mike wants to see this movie... and I groan when he mentions it. I'll have to break down and get it for his birthday... Groan... LOL... Thanks for the Jack Attack...(That's what Dragon calls it)... You tickled us by reading so many and commenting... You're a nice person I was teasing you and hope I didn't MAKE you read them.
