Great Reward For A Very Small Price



Such a tricky business it's always been Trying to cure the ills of the world Like bashing your head against a brick wall Making your brow all furled A multitude of others have tried before us Since the very beginning of time Their noble efforts have all been in vain Maybe now the answer we'll find Valiantly searching for that very elusive Path to peace and coexistence When all the peoples of this glorious planet Realize a peaceful existence A dreamer oh most definitely I've been For all these years of my life Won't stop now till my penultimate breath Great reward for a very small price © Jack Ellison 2013

    The world deserves a people like you Jack. Your quest will be achieved. The subject of coexistence between diversity can never be overemphasised. JM

    OOOPPPS! Dragon and I discovered it was Thanksgiving in Canada? Ours is in November... Draon wants to know if your trying for a beauty pagent crown... All the contestants want world peace... I told Dragon you'd rather be one of the Judges... Miss Wattle, Cathie, and I would make good contestants... But probably not Dragon... He's a bit too competetive... No one will believe him wanting world peace when he's steaming the competition! LOL... Don't look so innocent Dragon!... We've got your number!
