Over Zealous



Certainly can sometimes get over zealous In extolling my love for you souls Suddenly realize how overbearing it must be So I'll try to show a little more control Got a bunch of affection for all youse guys You all have that special something It's totally unique from one soul to the next Which gets this old heart a-beating Just love to discover what each person has Have I seen it before in someone else Each one of you adds your own little twist It determines everyone's wealth It's not the money you've got stashed away Or those fancy car you might drive It's stuff you've got deep down in your soul It's the friendships for which we strive © Jack Ellison 2013

    Our Techno Trolls want to help people get new stuff... Their motto is- out with the old so U can have the new... Call Techno Trolls- Have hammer will travel! They're for the wifes' of over zealous hubby's who keep fixing old stuff.! When us wiffy poos want something new! This is their busy season! They can make the old unfixable... in no time... Really! OOOppps! Dragon is getting steamed for their attention... Think he can chase the Techo Trolls to the lake today... LOL.. May the best Troll win!

    Hello again. To answer I've been searching for the magical way to free myself from this self imposed prison and it can't be a normal escape lol I guess it must be magical. I'm somewhere still in that gloom you sometimes refer to, but surely a few of these poems are a step in the positive direction. Great work as always old buddy.
