All Hail King Kelly

All Hail King Kelly By Dane Smith-Johnsen A footle a day Keeps melancholy away. And I just must say. Sean Kelly, today, You are what I’ve been missin’ Your words have risen. Life’s fun to new heights- Hail now, oh king of footles. Thy great wit brought forth. Bestowed on the world. Unhidden humor: thy pearl. Those chitty short writes. Great images sprout. From your words, there is no doubt. All hail to thee, friend. The footle king speaks. All ears listening say, “Wow!” Yes, he is the king. (Of footless and how-) . Written as a Tribute Poem to Sean Kelly.
