Click Here To Listen To The Beginning Of Life - Poem by Gordon Elston

The Beginning of Life Life is a precious thing, With Julie and Frank in the ring, Girls and boys are better than toys. One of each may bring you joys. My brother was a twin and not aware That I had first arrived there, I was a blonde and he a brunette, You'd think we had just arrived in a jet. My maternal grandfather was the M.D. He was the one to go to see. As we appeared were handed to the nurse, So excited admiring us, said, The first one is good enough for me. The second twin had arrived F.O.B. That's pretty good - yes siree! Hope that good enough for you and me.
