The Arc of Life

Travelling through life resembles an arc We start out as a child emerging from the dark To reach a crescendo Establishing a tempo Then sadly we all must eventually disembark © Jack Ellison 2015

Apples On Our Rock

There once reigned a great king on our Rock
Who dared the West and defied their bloc
Dark shades, face of a frown
Short brute so wanted down
Down, oriental appples on our Rock.

Life With T-Rump Xxi

Donald's faithful to his red star
Putin loves the Don from afar
Bizarre it may seem
It's been Vladimir's dream
To have an American Tsar

The Lark In the Dark

Sammy went out on a lark
sailing his boat in the dark
and while he got drunk
his little boat sunk
so his hangover went to the shark

Shark In the Soup

In my soup I could have sworn I saw a shark.
Swimming in roux that was rather dark.
But to my relief,
the fin a bay leaf.
Now I wear glasses before each meal I start.

In the Dark

Socialism, a theory of Karl Marx
Has kept too many nations in the dark
   Russia, Cuba, China
   And now Venezuela
Where half the electric grid doesn't spark

A Certain Lunatic

Where are we headed, is a silver lining in sight At the current pace, we'll be over the precipice before night It's already dusk Smarten up we must Before a certain lunatic precipitates an extinguishing of the lights

February Funny Bone

I know a young lady so fine
Her good looks almost made me blind
I bought some dark shades
To cut down the glaze
And now that young lady is mine

Cosmology Vs Cosmetology

Dark matter makes scientists sweat
Their telescopes can't find it...yet
What's lost could be found
If they’d just turn around
And gaze at a sexy brunette

Crocodile Tears

He made her life a living hell.
Her heart immune to the death knell
She breaks down and cries
Tears spring from her eyes
Her acting days now serve her well.

Music Is Alive

A musician resting in a spar,
Was playing his electric guitar,
An almighty spark
Plunged his home into dark,
He was left with a musical scar.

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

Limerick: Once a Dark Horse In a Handicap

Limerick : Once a Dark Horse in a handicap

Once a Dark Horse in a handicap
Led head, tail and hoof in the last lap
All eyes on winning post
Cameras clicked the most
Horse lost in the negative, so clap !

As thin as a thistle Santa  in chimney  got stuck
In  the passage heavily blocked by years of  muck
struggling through the  soot
Santa fell down like a coot
And came out looking like a dark fancy duck.

Only the Good Die Young Dark Limerick

Even though "Only the good die young"
A very well known song that's sung
But should it be said
Means less in the head
They wanted death before off the tongue

A Kiss In the Dark

Blinded and saving the love talk in the dark
In a sensuous connection came a spark
An active mind bee-lined for a kiss
Shilly-shally bemused as lass remarks
Lips to nose in a clear view face, turns dark.

Sagittariously Speaking

We will ride straight into the sun
Come back burnt, claiming it was fun
Our aim is usually on the mark
Any miss was because of the dark
Ask for advice we'll give you a ton

To die before you die is worse then death itself.
Time doesn’t stop as you are sprung backwards.
Now you have to climb forward
Desperately yearning to revert to your normal self.
Desperately wanting something to spring you back to where you were, happy.

Welcome to my naughty Halloween Meet my dark and beautiful dream On this night she's a witch But by day not a stitch So she's a stripper, but she's still my Queen

Light a Candle

light a candle
let it glow with hope
let its thin film of smoke 
disperse the dark clouds
let it drizzle and frizzle out your stress, 
let it wash off the stench of sweat
let your pregnant hope 
deliver twins and triplets; 
multiple tales of success.

Circus Clowns

After spending a night on the town
and drinking ale - a hearty dark brown,
we were feeling sooo frisky,
tried moves a bit too risky,
quickly learned: What goes up, must come down!
