Wilde Oscar

Written by: Jack Ellison

“Some cause happiness wherever they go Others whenever they go” One of Oscar Wilde's famous quotes Would have been a great man to know “Always forgive your enemies Nothing annoys them so much” Another gem from this famous fellow As a humorist he sure had the touch “America was discovered before Columbus But it had always been hushed up” Yet another gem from this fertile mind Don't think that's coffee in his cup “I think God in creating Man Somewhat overestimated his ability” This one totally cracks me up His mind worked with ease and agility “A little sincerity is a dangerous thing And a great deal of it is absolutely fatal” It's something I learned a long time ago In fact, I think I learned it prenatal “Anyone who lives within their means Suffers from a lack of imagination” You should throw all caution to the wind And give in to those naughty temptations “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable That we have to alter it every six months” Oscar is one of my favourite humorists His mind was definitely out to lunch! © Jack Ellison 2013
