Body Parts



Cheeks were meant for kissing Hands were meant for holding Ears were meant for listening Arms were meant for folding Eyes were meant for ogling Mouths were meant for stuffing Hair was meant for brushing Cheeks were meant for blushing Minds were for manipulating Knees were meant for kneeling Bums were meant for bumming around Thoughts for disagreeing Feet were meant for walking Palms were for reading the future Toes were meant for counting Common sense is for avoiding bloopers Tongues were meant for wagging Sores were meant for rubbing Eyebrows were meant for raising But hearts my very very good friends Hearts were meant for loving © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon bedazzled 'I <3 U' on Baby Jesus's swaddling clothes... Apparently, everyone plans to come back for tonight's performance to see what he's up to next. And the other actors love him! He snores puffs of hot air their way... The Rapid Response Turtle Team are playing the part of the 4 wise men... 3 are the normal wisemen... The 4th has a fire extinguisher... And has a few extra extinguishers behind his back (in case they are needed) Kinda gives a new spin on the nativity... Don't you think?
