Riding The Roost



Some call me prolific I call me obsessed Some say I'm a kook I say I'm blessed It's all that I think of Poems from the heart But silly damn nonsense Is still my main art Takes the same effort To make people laugh As it does to depress them To make you gasp So this here is me Just little old me A happy old duffer Filled with much glee So next time you're looking For a morning boost Check out this old Jester He'll be riding the roost © Jack Ellison 2013

    A agree, Jack. It's much better to make people laugh or smile than to bring them down. Keep on being yourself! Love, Kim
