My Jollies



Think the jollies are starting to return Told you I wouldn't stay down long Not those kind of jollies, you naughty people Thought you might get me wrong You people, you really should be ashamed What kind of dude d'ya think I am I'm quite respectable and live a clean life But in reality it's all just a sham Sometimes I'll be hanging from the chandelier Overcome be these jollies I enjoy Dribbling and drooling to beat the band Talk about jollies, ooooh boy! Sure must be careful at this ripe old age Not as agile as I once used to be So if you happen to hear a bulletin on CNN Man falls from chandelier, it's me! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Back up to your old tricks again, crazy one? Awww, it's so good to have you back in that silly mood. Enjoy the jollies but for heaven's sake steer clear of chandeliers. Big hugs, Santa XOXOXOX.

    It's the only thing I can hang on to when someone touches me... your know... there... and it makes me leap ! Want to come and sit on Santa's knee, little girl and let me bounce you up and down... wink wink! You have such a bad influence on me, my dear Licia! Big warm cuddly, snuggly huggers xox

    You Go Jack! We'll send the Rapid Response Turtle Team to administer first aid when you fall... Will need to keep them warm however, to keep them out of hibernation... LOL... Sending Igor with them in case you need the claws of life to get out of that chandelier... Dragon is staying here for his very first Turkey Dinner... Sorry... Food won out... Tho we might call the white snow turtles that live under your snow for back up.... (PS. When I wrote the poem- People thought they were real! Honest!)

    Call them back... I'm okay!!! LOL But I'm glad to know if it happens again, I'll call your guys instead of 9-1-1! They're probably faster... I don't believe I'm talking about your imaginary people as if they're real! YIKES! xoxox
