John Cougar Mellencamp

A singer named John Cougar Mellencamp
Writes popular songs like a spellin' champ
The music is grand and the lyrics are fine
Except when he wants to jam too many damn words into a line

    Hi Roy: A great poem that aptly describes the Cougar. I liked him back in the day, especially his Pink Houses. Speaking of Tesla, this guy was the father of Wireless. Its a shame the way he ended up. Thanks for your comment on my Thomas Alva Edison.

    Very cleverly done Roy.

    Roy, I really like this one. The last line was very clever because you did exactly like him in crowding all the words together. I would have placed it higher, but I needed to see just his name in the title. congrats for your win.
