The Sunny Side Of Life



Always look on the sunny side The sunny side of life It's where you'll forever find me Life's just one big slice A slice of joy and happiness Waiting for you to call Doesn't even require a passport It's there to welcome all A thousand times more enjoyable Than stumbling round in a funk Your step will have a much livelier gait You'll smile a whole big bunch All are capable, my very good friends Matter of mind over matter If you think positive and grin each day Happy genes will get much fatter Now it's very well known knowledge Happy genes can go a long way To extending your days here on earth And be a much happier stay! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, my friend, your presence is a testimony of your words! I am certain you are going to be one hundred years and ten for joy is your middle name and you are never scared! Wonderful my friend!

    Hmmm not sure about the one hundred and ten promise but if I make it, I'll still be on Poetry Soup. However, you may not be able to make any sense out of it! LOL Thanks as always, my good friend! Jack

    There's always something to laugh and smile about here... Everyone is still a chuckle over the gutter frog... I'd climb a tree, too... If I was that small... Trolls and Dragon have rather large feet... He's been chirping at us every since we took him from the gutter... The Weird frogs translated that as... Stupid humans cleaned out my home! But he forgave us... With our trees he'll have his gutter home fixed up real quick... LOL... Doesn't say much for our keeping the gutters clean., tho... LOL
