Mediocre Man

There once was a man that was lackluster
Who's life was one giant cluster
Writes a suicide note
He slits his throat
Blank stares are all his family can muster

Charge It

I only just begun to charge
Impulsive buys are way too large
My credit card sighs
While bankbook cries
My pay cheque I need to enlarge


*So many things to buy since I bought a house, but I really am a wise shopper : )

Tests

Pen flies when out of sight,
Boy, I hope that I'm right.
No award for me,
What a shame that'd be,
At least I gave it all my might.

Address Stress

If you have ever suffered from stress
Be brave and see it addressed
For help is out there
Honestly, some people care
Looking back you'll be fairly impressed

Away back in nineteen eighty two
I was one, it could easily be you
So don't be ashamed
Before it's ingrained
Believe me with help, you'll see it through

Hunkering Down



Hibernation is the name of the game As we hunker down today from the rain 200 mph winds were sustained In that Mexican hurricane Best let it blow over as to a lamp post we're chained © Jack Ellison 2015

Byard, A Real Peculiar Name

Barred

Billy Joe was a caring bartender
who tried to be a broken-heart mender.
But stories of woe
put him in a hole.
Now he's gone on a two-week bender.

Sorrow Situations

There was a woman with a heart of malice,
drowning her sorrows within a chalice
Weep not, brighter days are ahead
Truth sinks in as she lies in bed 
The loud cries of her name echo, "Alice"?

Resignation


			When you’re sucker-punched with frustration	
			and can’t find a cause for elation,
			when you’re unsuccessful
			and life’s super stressful,
			you surely will feel perturbation.

			When you face severe provocation
			and fear that there’s no mitigation
			for hard knocks life’s sending;
			you’re breaking, not bending.
			You seek means of self-preservation.

			You may sometimes feel the temptation
			to cave to complete trepidation.
			Don’t yield, I beseech you.
			The light may soon reach you
			if your mindset’s not resignation.

			*******************************

			When life is a race I’m not winning,
			my foundation needs underpinning.
			Time spent softly praying
			does help heal my fraying
			nerves—fragile from all that head-spinning!

Long Skinny Legs



Flamingos have extra long skinny legs Why is that so, the natural question begs Their bodies are large To understand is hard How they support themselves on these long skinny pegs

Our Local Vampire



Had a blood sample taken by our local vampire Saw traces of blood on her teeth when she smiled She drew an extra flask For an afternoon snack She sure looked scary in her vampire attire

Sometimes Drives Us Up A Tree



Wise and understanding we always should be Circumstances can sometimes drive us up a tree But in spite of these times Friendships must still shine And live forever in our favourite dungarees
