Quacks Like A Duck

I've written about chickens with big fat legs Told of eating my way through the fridge My psychiatrist says I'm really quite normal Though I feel unbalanced, a smidge I've heard of a place, can't remember where They can treat an affliction like mine Problem is though, it means a lobotomy Sends a quake up and down my spine Don't wanna be mumbling naughty verses As I wander the streets in my socks Or talking about inappropriate subjects Like armpits, halitosis or snots One reviewer said I was absolute bonkers But still sings along with my songs Seems like she might have the same affliction Methinks both of our mind's long gone The bottom line to all this nonsense Not much can be done so I'm stuck Wearing this crown of a silly old jester And quacking all day like a duck © Jack Ellison 2013

Ducks are us... LOL... Slightly more than 14 inces snow yesterday. And inch away from our all time record in one day... My son was thinking of moving to Colorado, but has a Canadian girlfriend in college... His favorite comment seems to be 'Canada R Us' now... The good news here is that the snow will disappear by the end of the week. I have to shovel the two car driveway. I bet that dragon could melt it all off in minutes... But Noooo... When I ask him he laughed and wandered off. Dumb Dragon!
