The 11th of August is a special day
I’m sending good wishes Jack Ellison’s way
For it’s his birthday, he’s eighty three
He’s a great character I’m sure you agree
He writes limericks sometimes rude
Always funny but never crude
Serious poems he writes too
Jack just likes to entertain you
He is an asset to this group
The limerick king of Poetry Soup
So Jack keep writing don’t go away
Your fans on here want you to stay
Drop in on his page and make his day
And wish Jack Ellison a happy birthday.

This is darling; I am sure that Jack is loving it. I had no idea he is 83; I was picturing him in his 60's. Wow! So wonderful that his mind is always on fire.

Oh yes, Jack is an inspiring man loved by all, he is eighty-three and he is on a roll! Jack was born in Montreal the city I have spent 18 years. I have called him the Mozart of Limericks.
