Head And Shoulders



There are some people here on the Soup And I won't mention any names That stand head and shoulders above the rest They belong in a Poet's Hall of Fame From the very first poem to the very recent The talents of these artists are evident With every line, every phrase, every nuance Such stirring words and so elegant Honoured to call these people my friends In awe of the talent they possess Far and away my biggest idols on the Soup We Soupers are totally blessed © Jack Ellison 2013

    You are so right my friend, there is such talent here on the Soup...I love to read all the masterful poems that they all create and I really enjoy them, that includes you my friend! Thank you for writing this incredible piece, it means a lot...if I only could be on that list of being one of the best on the Soup...I know better, I might be a decent writer but I would never place myself very high on the greatest writers list! But I believe you are on the list though my buddy, Great Work!!

    I really don't include myself in this list. I dabble in poetry... I am not in the class of those folks that I have written about here. You have such a gentle way with words and have always been so supportive of this old jester and everyone else here on the Soup! I am honoured to call you a friend, Russell! Hope you're feeling better soon...

    Dragon wants to know if his ability to get in trouble. puts him a head above the rest? Or if his long neck will do it? He does love to be first... Silly Dragon! Trying to be on Santa's nice list has gotten Dragon in a lot of trouble... So I wrote "Naughty or Nice" to tell about it... If he could only see the destruction he leaves in his wake! He volunteered to be in the live nativity scene at the Church. They said OK... if he allows them to tie his mouth shut... This should be interesting...

    And here I thought this was going to be a poem about Dandruff Shampoo. My inner child loves to take over whenever it gets a chance. But, since it wasn't about flaky scalps, I will wholeheartedly agree with you that the talent here on the Soup surpasses any other non-sensical bloggy banter that happens on here. I am honored to know you here, true story.
