Bashful Billy



Said Bashful Billy To this pretty young filly "Can I give you a peck on the cheek?" Said the pretty filly To Bashful Billy "Yes, but first there's something I seek!" Well, Bashful Billy Really had no clue What this filly was asking Billy for So he whipped out a frog From his colourful togs Said, "If that's not enough, I have more!" "No! No! Silly Billy! That's not what I mean Want you to do magic tricks for me!" "It is told you can bake A great Birthday Cake While balancing a hot cup of tea!" "Well, yes if you wish So then may I kiss The tender young cheek that I yearn?" "Well, not quite so fast There's a thing I must ask That you teach me a trick I may learn!" Well Billy agreed To teach this young filly A trick that he knew she would love With a wave and a shake Of his magical cape A pink cloud came down from above Although they were hidden You knew she was smitten Bashful Billy had won her young heart Riding into the sunset With love a sure bet You knew they would never part! © Jack Ellison 2014

    Dragon wants to know if that pink cloud was really another Dragon like him? And did they ride into the sunset on the dragon? Sorry. Dragon doesn't believe a cloud would do it. He says clouds are moody and like to rain on his parade! AND everything else! Yep! That sounds like Dragon all right. Just ignore him, He's fussy this morning. I told him to go to the store with me yesterday. To pick out that new barbecue sauce he wanted. But NOOOO! He had to watch TV instead, so he didn't get THAT sauce.
