The Right Side Of The Turf



How am I feeling today Hang on let me check All things being equal I'm pretty good, by heck! Woke up this morning On the right side of the turf Nothing can really drag me down My days are filled with mirth I'll try to pass some along So my heart's not on overload Gotta watch my dear old ticker There's a danger it'll explode Anyone who'd like to share my love Can send a written request To this Poetry Soup Jester guy To accommodate, I'll do my best Contrary to what you probably think I don't have an unlimited supply But have no fear, I've still got a bunch To send you guys in reply If the love I send you, my dearest friends Happens to have a defective part My service department is open till 10 To mend the broken heart! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon and I love this! But bad news! Dragon tripped when exiting the manger and sprung a big toe! Wrapped it up and give him a crutch to use for a few days... He was worried over that break a leg comment, but he's having too much fun with all the attention! Tonight he'll be a bedazzled Baby Jesus with a foot sticking out. There'll be magic markers present so everyone can sign his big fat bandage! Reminds me of his head. He wants Cathie to send a kiss it to make it feel better! Isn't that CUTE!
