The World Is My Oyster


The world is my oyster I've heard it said Not a fan of oysters how about chocolate instead Or delicious french fries smothered in ketchup For an omelette with home fries, early I'd get up Do you feel a theme running through my words Not addicted to the yummies, that's totally absurd Granted they sometimes take over my thoughts But so does kissing really like that a lot Or even just sitting and gazing at the moon With the love of my life, making me swoon Guess what I'm saying is enjoy what you have Some don't have anything makes me feel sad How fortunate to know we're safe in our homes Some don't know if their homes they still own The bottom line is give thanks every day Hopefully that will keep your troubles at bay © Jack Ellison 2013

    I'm one of the fortunate ones around here. Got to keep my home. Around me a 1/3 to a 1/2 of the homes were lost when people lost their jobs... It's simmered down at the moment... 8 homes were forclosed on at a time in a 2 block radius This kept up for about 2 years... It would have happened to me when I lost my job after 30 years but I got on disability instead... There were 2000 people lined up for 1 job for a while... That's better too. The middle class is almost gone here. Always be Thankful.
