The Day CNN Shut Down



If only love happened round the world That would be a pretty slow news day Actually CNN would have to shut down No “JUST IN” bulletins, per se Weather reports predict nothing but sunshine Temperatures high in the 80s People goin' round wearing dirty big grins Things all coming up daisies Wake up, wake up, my real good friends Time to rise and start your day Don't try watching the morning news CNN has shut down they say No point in broadcasting only good news Boring and humdrum for sure Imagine watching nothing but jubilation It would sure bore one to the core Wake up, wake up, my good friend Jack Seems you were having too good a time You had a great big smile on your kisser If only real life was so sublime © Jack Ellison 2013

    I was hoping they had actually shut down and i missed the good news. I guess since i don't watch the news it's irrelevant anyway. I always found the Eagles song, Dirty Laundry, funny at a young age, now i find it almost sadly true with little exaggerating. Great work Jack on a sore subject of mine.

    Bulletin in! Dragon got up sleepy and poo'd on his pants covering my roses... Ha!... When he discovered what he'd done- he learned how to roar like a big dragon... with feeling and fire! OOOPPPS! His pants went up in smoke!... Doubt we could ever get the smell out, any way...Waiting for his next move... Winning! But for how long? And he still hasn't learned his lesson! Sigh!... We're going to be on Santa's naughty list for sure!... The things I get into for that silly Dragon!

    My apologies to you and Mike and the gang for taking so long to get back to you! Got hit with a pretty major snow storm... 5 to 6 inches and still snowing! CRAP! Hugs, Jack xoxox
