Digging A Bigger Hole



Humans can be such loving souls But they can also be mean and malicious Depending on who will benefit the most Though the reasons might be fictitious Devious is the word to describe these souls Not the most charming of human attributes Can always say, “we're only human” But really that's not a very good excuse As hard as I try to rise above the crowd I'm no different, I'm part of the scene Not proud but human nature can dictate My reaction to events unforeseen Guess we all are trying our very hardest To be a kind and real loving souls We sometimes fall quite short of the mark And wind up digging a bigger hole <3 <3 <3 © Jack Ellison 2013

    I love this Jack the Quatrain King - how very true. I think it's prudent to remind ourselves that none of us is above reproach. Very well written!

    You do know Dragon! He followed a squirrel in a game of tag. A whole tree bent down to the ground! At least, I didn't have to tell him to come down! Tho when he let go...his squirrel was sent into orbit, by the fling of the tree! He had a lot of explaining, to the poor guys relatives! Had to go get him back, too! Now no one will play with him! So Sad! Tho, No animals were harmed in the making of this story! And the squirrel got an astronaut badge while aboard the orbiting space station... COOL!
