A Clean Hacienda

There once was a woman named Linda

Who would keep a clean hacienda

     Till four children she bore

     And then bore she one more...

She now has a different agenda!

Rock, Paper and Scissors

The scissors are beaten by the rock
Man made steel has been left in shock
Now the rock has been beat
By a flimsy light sheet
The winning paper is where our words talk

Beers and Tears

Men measure life by the number of beers
Women measure life by the flow of tears
It is when the dad farts
His wife moans in her heart
Because her own children laugh and cheer

Aunt In Jail

My drunken old aunty’s in jail,
She murdered a man for his ale,
And although she is bad,
I suppose she is mad
She isn’t allowed out on bail.

My Family Doctor

Never ever had a family doctor for most of my life But since becoming an old fart, now I never ever think twice A pain in my lower regions Or my neck or some unknown adhesions Off I toddle, don't rely on the roll of the dice © Jack Ellison 2015

There once was a girl by the name Joy   
who got joy whenever she'd annoy 
Her poor little brother 
she swapped for another 
Now; him, too, she would love to destroy.

Egg Hunt

The Easter egg hunt was a blast,
With everyone running quite fast
Confetti in our hair
Not to mention underwear
Let's hope that dye isn't cast.

The President favors extortion

And under out thumb
To grope the greatest proportion"

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

She Really Did Get This Call

I wish I could be a fly on the wall,
When my poor old mother gets the phone call,

        “He’s here at the bar
        Quick bring us your car,

Your husband just got in a brawl”

My Favorite Shoes Ain'T Mine

My favorite shoes in the closet they sit.
I've never worn 'em not even a bit.
Cuz before I was born,
By my Dad they were worn,
I'll not wear them 'til I'm sure they'll fit.

Double Disappointment

I woke up in rapture, when she started to sing.
Naughty whispers in my ears, “Someone’s coming”
My ecstatic view;
A child is due!
Then she continues, “My mother’s visiting”

Who married a woman named Anne.
Three kids plus one more,
Males a total of four,
Now it's Dan and Anne and their clan.

Mothers are the best 
They are like a test
They are very loving 
They like a flower budding
The treat us like a fest.

Who found he couldn't reach for

I Just Had To Do That Search

Rich white-collar crooks wearing suits,    
	street walkers, and rowdy old coots,
	bank robbers, dope dealers,
	bootleggers, fake healers--           
	I found while pursuing my roots!

New Life

Hiding in mummy's tummy, kicking happily away
 I'm kissing you warmly, clapping and singing in play
 They say in a few weeks
 I'll be able to kiss  your new cheeks
 I can't wait for the morning I'll lift you in a sway

Roman Wedlock

A baby, pious, was born by aide
He named it Gaias, and felt like a jade
While he cried,
Cause mommy died.
His wife hired yet another maid.

Irish Potato

Me great, great, great-grand pappy-died
His son, sailed away from fighting Ireland
In the wake of the potato famine, sought land
Farming his love, many sons his pride
Irish potatoes-boiled, mashed, salad and fried
