My Charm And Humbleness

With my tongue planted firmly in my cheek... We certainly can't all be movie stars Who'd be left to go to the show I don't mind being the one to sacrifice It's not about the big heaps of dough Yes, the sacrifice would be a mighty one But I'm prepared for life as a star Maintaining my charm and humbleness Which will certainly take me far I'd live in a mansion in Beverly Hills But I wouldn't forget my roots You people could visit me any old time It certainly won't cost you much loot Normally I'd charge an arm and a leg But for you folks it'd just be an arm What the hey, you've got more than one No reason to get so alarmed It would go to a very worthy cause To provide me with the life I deserve For entertaining all you very sweet folks You think I'm throwing you a curve? How could you think so badly of me When have I lied to you before? I'm as straight and honest as the day is long You've hurt me to the very core Okay, okay, I must come clean I'm yanking your chain a wee bit The reason I've decided to do this for you So you'll remember when I'm a big hit © Jack Ellison 2013

First dragon wanted you to come down from heaven so you could entertain him... Now he wants to visit... bringing his barbecue sauce... Dumb Dragon.. Why couldn't he be more like our Trolls... They're floating rubber ducky's in our basement between the floating boxes... Down stream to the drain of course... It's a race and obstacle course... Go Trolls... My Hubby's the ony one losing... boxes that is... LOL

I would always remember you my old friend! You have made an impact in my life just by your humorous poetry! I really enjoyed reading this enlightening poem this morning! What a tremendous and perfected piece this one truly is! You would surely make it as an actor Jack, I'm sure of it! What an astonishing poem, Great Work!!
