Satirical, Slapstick, And Self-Depracating



Well, it's back to the sillies I go This serious stuff is hurting my brain If you notice I'm being serious again Admonish me, must be totally insane Must maintain my “silly” status Or I'll totally fade away from the scene “D'ya hear bout a guy who walked into a bar” Sorry! Well you know what I mean My humour's more of a cerebral nature Yah right! Who am I trying to kid? I'm down with all the rest of those guys An image I could never get rid Satirical, slapstick or self-deprecating Puns creeps in now and then Not what you'd call that high brow stuff A hit with my P-Soup friends Well hopefully I've got my point across Though I might write a “serious” again But they'll be rare, few and far between A great big relief for my brain © Jack Ellison 2013

    I love how you write some serious, touching stuff and then come out with a poem to serve as comic relief. It's a breath of fresh air for some poets, particularly myself. I tend to write about darker subjects. Though I have been writing a couple of lighthearted ones. You're inspiring. Thanks.

    Also, I like how you write like your just having a lighthearted conversation with them, but at the same time it rhymes. Your personality shines in all of them is what I mean to say I guess. I respect that! I can't wait for what you'll write next! Always, Laura

    You go Jack! Whatever makes you happy! Dragon loved his sea food lunch! Now he's all excited about seeing the ocean! But he's to young to travel that far, yet... He applied for an U.P.S. job the other day... But the union said he had to wait till he's over nappie times before he can join them. Read 'Dragon, The UPS Guy'... Might tickle your funny bone... Our UPS Guy got a kick out of it. Dragon idolizes him, almost as much as he idolizes, you! But you're always one step ahead of everybody... LOL

    Yes, don't let your brain implode in misery, degradation, & self-pity. It's rampant on the internet & in society, as a whole. It's so easy to fall, yet hard to stand up. But, only we make it so difficult. Kudos on this. Some should heed this advice...like, yesterday. Spot on, sir.
