Gerry's Poem for J.K.
Just a short poem for Jim Kelly
The master of card 'finger flinging'
So good he should be on the Telly
And have you heard him singing?
He's a clever tonsorial artiste
And I think this judgement is fair
He's in the top ten thousand at least
I mean when he's cutting your hair
That's just a wee joke among us
As a barber he is just supreme
He's brilliant at whatever he does
All easy for him it would seem
With my famous linguistic verbosity
You would think it would be undemanding
To recount Jim's great generosity
But it's just beyond my understanding
I don't mean just with his money
But his time and expertise too
And he laughs at my jokes though unfunny
I hope that that rubs off on you.
As you know I could go on forever
This of course is self evident
The man is terribly clever
I salute him as our president
This silly wee poem is now finished
Just one more verse for JK
My admiration's never diminished
I'm sure that's what all of us say
Before this rhyming gets 'werse'
And my guilty face simply goes redder
If you don't like this silly wee verse
Just give to George for his shredder!
