My Silliness Hat



My 'sillyness' hat is atop my head As I begin this September day Who knows where this weird mind of mine Will take me, who's to say Could go where no man's tread before To the outer limits of comedy On second thought, that's probably not it Sylvester the Cat is my matey Thuffering succotash! I'm totally lost Where's my silliness gene How could I be so simply darn careless Silliness is a part of my scene It defines the jester within my soul Always been my, “raison d'être” Betcha you didn't know I was multilingual No telling how far that'll get ya! Perhaps the U.N. with its many lingoes Interpreting the countless speeches Seems my 'silly' gene is alive and well Returned from the outer reaches © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ah yes, the silliness hat! You seem to don it most days my friend, sending graciously, awesome, delightful, hilarious poetry for us to read at least one a day is the minimum (at least I must have one!) I love it when you send us at least one crazy poem, it makes the day so much more bearable! Like today, I'm having a rough day, but your poem made it better! Thank you for your charming work my friend! You make it all worth while! Great Work!!

    I send Dragon to the outer reaches, to help him practice flying...or at least that's what I tell him, every morning.... It's really so I'll have time for a morning cup of coffee... When he gets back the writting and fun begins. Grandpa Troll picks my roses every morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed, to go a courting... I keep telling him to wait until the middle of the day... Waking up potential girlfriends isn't smart. They keep slamming the door in his face... No wonder he's still single!
