oh yes Michael could definitely sing with or without holding his "thing" his hips held the beat as he watched his feet Maybe he just didn't like to swing (as in music tempo) great one Jan my effort is poor here just for fun...Seren

Hello Jan … hello, the fun police get a mention. They're like a jumbo jet landing - the engines stop except their whining goes on and on - good one Jan - Lindsay

And just think, MJ did not live long enough to go from crotch to crotchety ...And that was likely all for the best... ~ Gershon

I was unsure if I should submit it to the contest but as I enter fewer and fewer these days I thought I'd take the risk with this one:-) hugs Jan xx

I loved Michael Jackson, "Billie Jean" was one of my favorites, I remember watching the World Premiere of "Thriller," still miss him-

I think many can remember staying up to watch Thriller when it was shown for the first time on TV:-) hugs Jan xx

Ah, so you did also choose a pop star! I LOVE LOVE LOVE MJ’s music but he can keep the crotch-grabbing! Ew. Great limerick :-D

I was in 2 minds about entering it for the contest and have another one in reserve, but with all the positive comments I will risk it in the contest. its a premiere so I know places are limited and to be honest I use the contests as writing prompts and enter fewer and fewer these days:-) hugs jan xx

Thank you for the witty entertainment, Jan. I'm afraid MJ never really managed to 'grab' my attention! Hugs // paul
