Cured Of My Sillies

Enough of this silliness, this one's more serious What am I saying, I'm becoming delirious Best see a doctor, got a strange kind of malady Hope it's not going to affect my mortality Now let's not be silly, it's just a wee glitch Be back with the sillies, though I'm starting to twitch What if my serious side has turned off for good Whenever I try, I'll smell burning wood A chill just came over my Adonis-like body I shudder and shake and start thinking naughty Okay I promise to try a couple more times Not promising nuttin', from this very strange mind Last vestiges of a smile I've tried to erase Solemn and serious taking over my face Are you buying my attempt to convince you I've changed You're not buying it, still think I'm deranged? To convince you, here's my medical report “Cured of the sillies, but needs your support!” © Jack Ellison 2015

    Sorry Jack had to cut in between you and Tim you really do captivate my eyes beyond your clap happy, happy poetic verse. I just can't believe you ever being strange. Sorry haven't been leaving too many comments of late just finished off my second book to be published by the end of the year. Take care and keep your happiness spreading with happy cheer. Many hugs to you.... Eve

    Are you becoming serious like Dragon? Do you, too, want to become a Super Hero. Feel the urge that the mail must get thru? Don't worry! It's those crazy Wheaties, again! It's a govt conspiracy to keep our countries strong. Just eat them up, they wind you up, and a Super Hero you become! Can't say for other cereals, but think fortified is their power juice... The only support you'll be needing... is like Dragon... to help get you back to the ground! Not everybody reacts this way, so have a hoot!

    You are cured of the sillies but I think you might have caught the giddies, the slap happys, the punch-drunkenness, the ridiculousness, the goofy's, wackies and a side of the zanies.

    Prffft…Pfffrappp…and piddle, I don't believe it a little, A solemn Jack? No humor attack? It's a scam or some sort of riddle.
