Oops! Forgot The Title

19 Apr

This is a quick post because I start my back to work course today and I have to spend the time before bus getting ready like real people.

The prompt was ‘meow’; here are some cat poems:

In The Street

I met a white cat. 

That cat was fat.  A car drove

past…splat!  Flat fat cat.

Man’s Second-Best Friend

Sitting in state in

the garden, Cat contemplates

his rotten fate: damned

 9

an inferior

runner-up to Dog – that one,

peeing up the gate.

Feline Sad

9

My much-loved cat is
dying. He makes no noise. My
life has no-purr puss.

Somehow, he caught the
mange. Hairs fell out one by one:
he’s a no-fur puss.

At last his pain is
over. He gasped his last breath.
Now he’s no-air puss.

Muffin the Cats

9

I once owned two cats named Muffin,

but not at the same time. 

One’s buried under a conifer;

the other under a lime.

I’m afraid it often happens:

one cat, one car will flatten.

Every time.

    Linda, How sad. Particularly poignant given my recent history with kittens.
    But, as usual, extremely witty.

      Only the one about the two Muffins is (sort of) true. We have three cats and a million gerbils buried in our garden. My brother says the RSPCA have us on their Most Wanted list.

    Really liked Feline Sad. Sometimes, bad puns can make everything better, sometimes.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
