Hope I Don't Go Blind



Now why didn't I do this years ago Lost a bunch and feel a hundred times better Obsessed with eating? A resounding yes Never followed any plan to the letter Then one day fifteen months ago The skies cleared and I saw a bright light It signalled if you don't smarten up Your soul will be taking the next flight I'm sure not ready to cash in my chips Literally scared the poop outta me So I bit the bullet and stuck to a system Can now say it's easier to breathe Bottom line is, the more you put in Stands to reason the body stores the excess It was blimp time at this old guy's house Now I'd even look good in a dress Now don't go reading stuff into that line Just a phrase so try to settle down With these bulging muscles and great physique Sure wouldn't look good in a gown “Now this silliness has really got to stop Can't you be serious sometimes?” That's asking a lot from this old jester dude I'll try hard... I hope I don't go blind! © Jack Ellison 2013

    We would love you dressed or not! Dragon is a guy... but with eye candy and all he looks like a girl... All dragons love to gussy up like that... He says he wants to diet, too... But I told him no... he's only two and has a lot of growing up to do... But, he has discovered that he likes barbecue sauce salads... Eweee! To each their own... LOL You started a new rage... among Dragons... better than on my sneakers... I always say
