Mr Magoo

I had a black cat called Magoo
The slippers and clothes it would chew
This damaged its jaw
And broke every claw
Thank goodness I had super glue!

Granny had a yellow cat

                            Granny had a yellow cat Matty Sand-arum
                       She was fond of Cherry Blossom and bubblegum
                                       Cherry ached in her tummy
                                          Bubble is double balmy
                   She yelled out scummy gummy and fell into the scum

            Today is voting day, I must make it a goal
            I'd rather take up residence at the north pole
                             All the cat fighting 
                              And name calling
         To be honest ,I don't want neither one in control

Miss Wrong with plenty of Baggage

I still haven't found my Miss Right;
the girl with the cat was a fright:
she farted all day
and stank of decay,
then played with her pussy all night...

There was a Black Cat in Miami

There was a Black Cat in Miami

There was a Black Cat in Miami
Whose owners were told he’s Siami
But he’s just a Black Cat
Nothing special about that
Disappointed those folks of Miami

Meow and Me and You

Meow and Me and You

My mind reminded me of sound meow,
That a cat will do to both me and you;
Next does occur;
Hear him purr;
Guess what find friend, we have two.

They are tabby cats that are always

Cousin Bell

Cousin Bell moved into a maisonette,
Was promptly told she could not have a pet
Not a cat or dog
Not a fish or frog
What about a gorilla she just met?

I Once Had a Gray Cat That Could Clog

I once had a gray cat that could clog
and was better than any old dog.
His feet work was fast
but stardom didn’t last
when he fell for this stunning tree frog.

My gray cat and tree frog was to wed
on night he was to dance for our bread.
He got very sick
when frog he did lick
was quiet toxic, now gray cat is dead.

When gray cat finally reached cloud nine
told gate keeper he was feeling fine.
Though he looked quite green
he captured the scene
when he clogged to the front of the line.

Hat Crazy

Louise Gratton always wore a hat on,
Even on her bicycle when she sat on,
They were various colours and design,
Her millinery skills always fine,
Now she's making one to put her cat on.

Pasta cat

There was a large cat from Llanelli
Who was terribly fond of spaghetti
One day out of menace
He travelled to Venice
Where he dined in the sun on a jetty.

Animal Magnetism

A pet more exotic I'd wanted.
A pet to be groomed and then flaunted.
Not a dog or a cat -
Something cooler than that!
I began my search feeling undaunted

In a pet store I came on a ferret.
Such a pain he was! How did I bear it?
Under doors and through cracks
He'd escape from meAAAACH!!
So I traded him in for a parrot.

Well, the parrot just wanted to fly!
And that bird knew more bad words than I.
When he called me a whore,
I threw open the door:
“Now you’re getting your wish, BirdBYE BYE!

A boa constrictor I bought,
He’d like to be cuddled, I thought,
But he wrapped and he squeezed,
As I gasped and I wheezed,
And offered the rat that I’d caught.
A bowl of piranha I won -
I played Baccarat with a nun -
And they wiggled their bums,
So I tickled their tums,
But bones ’stead of fingers aint fun.

My elderly aunt sent a text,
Suggesting tarantulas next,
But my spider alas,
Took a bite of my ass:
My pet-owning hobby is hexed.

I went to the pet shop, I swear,
But nothing I wanted was there -
To my pets I am prey,
So I went on eBay,
And purchased a big teddy bear.

A Dog And A Cat And A Flea

A dog and a cat and a flea,
All sat down to some tea,
They all ate some ham,
With some bread and some jam,
And were all as content as can be.

Did you hear about Ricky the Raccoon
Who found a cat who had swooned
He returned it back home
In case, dazed it did roam
His reward, a night on the toon

Some Limericks...

She’s out there chasing a cricket

Through bush, through shrub & through thicket

Together they hop

Fugitive, cop

But when she gets it, she just wants to lick it!

A cat whose vet took his eye

Just cannot quite understand why

His eye’s been enucleated,

3-D vision reduciated,

So now, he keeps an eye out for an eye

Ya gotta keep limericks loose

Think green eggs, or perhaps DrSeuss

They’re structured, it’s true,

But they’re also a zoo

Whose tenants are all on the loose!

I frolic in fountains of words

Overflowing with serious absurds

Each poem I write

Wakes up and takes flight

Joining angels and faeries and birds

You ask that we write a good limerick

How to do so, I haven’t a glimmerick

So I struggle and frown

Teaching  poems to clown

So a smile on your lips will be shimmerick

A cat with a mouth full of mouse

Brought her feast right into my house

She played with her food

Who was not in the mood

To be a banquet of mouse in the house

The nightmares that shadow my sleep

Stampede the proverbial sheep

Right out of my mind

When I try to unwind

I find my appointment with sleep hard to keep

In her search for original truth

She met people unsavory and couth

She knitted and purled

But only unfurled

Yarns told by new age and old youth

Cat, suddenly pink,

Drinks her water from out of the sink

She looks so absurd

Since she’s been de-furred

I really don’t know what to think!

If one and one is two and two is four,

And there’s only two ways to go through  a door,

Then, is earth up or down?

And, where is down town?

These are questions we need to explore!

A was that is an is

Tried to mind my biz

But I sent it packing,

Its presence was lacking

And I don’t have time for such shiz!

A couple who lived in Los Lunas

Loved the wide desert sky’s crystal blueness

They’d stare at the air,

Over here, over there

And rejoice at the feeling of newness

A cat with a very fat gut

Found it easier to walk on his butt

He’d drag it around

Across carpet and ground

And use it to slam the doors shut

Said the Missus to her dear MrOtter,

“There’s something I think that you oughta

Do before we get old

To protect us from cold –

You oughta make the hot water hotter!”

The ghosts who live up in my attic

Make noises that sound much like static

I’ve tried to send them away,

But they’re here to stay,

Those staticky ghosts in my attic

I raised an Australian dingo,
no name came to mind but Ringo;
he jumped on me,
ripped my clothes daily...
it costed me plenty of money!

Only once I left him alone;
good furniture was torn!
Oh, should I be mad...
or be kind instead?
I'll sleep over it for tonight!

All Ringo did was run, bark and howl,
mistaking a small cat for an owl;
They took him away
to the zoo today;
he'll whimper form his cage, not rest!

I'll take him back, lest he behaves;
his lesson he'll learn:  good manners!
Now, Ringo just stares
to earn forgiveness...
it's fun to play with him and laugh!

http://www.Bully Me This, Bully Me That 
Who's Afraid of the undercover  surveillance, informing, informational 
informant, cool, low, down, dirty, Cat 

why he has all the power and would never lie 
that's why he's able to use the law 
to  badger me (harass : to exhaust an enemy by attacking repeatedly)
and fix it so i will die 
where is the right and the wrong of my government 
its seem to be all gone 
or was it never there 

why his game is so smooth, and yet so mean 
you'd think, your the one 
whit (with) a pocket full of dreams   
but its not you mind full of colors 
that he wants 
its, the control of the  mental
to make you want, what he 
wants you to want 
buy, sell, cheat, and lie 
or eat and die 
So whats, that got to do with you? 
its time for you, to protect you, and figure it out...
or the next generation will 
make many men rich, beyond rich..

PS..which way is just-us (more like just me!)

Teaching Pussy To Swim

I was teaching my cat to swim,
His pussy face looked so grim,
Dad said, "Make the lessons shorter,
you see cats just don't like water,
even so, I rate your chances slim."

Breakfast For two

"Breakfast for two"

Callie the cat 
climbed the cypress
curious for something to eat.

Benny the bird 
perched on a branch
just a claw out of Callies reach.

Benny the bird 
spied a round worm
snaking along the ground.

Few a-ground 
went Benny the bird
and chowed the yummy thing down.

Now Benny the bird
sat licking his beak
enjoying his morning treat,

while Callie the cat
planned the attack
for too her morning treat;

Well Benny the bird
no longer around,
to see mornings a-new
For the squiggly round worm
that became a treat
was also breakfast for two...

Felix and Mr Erwin Schrodinger

                        Felix was angry I could not blame the cat for that
                   Mr.Schrödinger should have opted for a clean bowler hat
                                    His experiment was a chiller
                                    Prussic acid was  a sly killer
                     Felix could not endure the cheekiest quantum rat

                 But Mr.Erwin Schrödinger was a great digger of truth
        He went straight to Huttenstrasse's " Who-will-bell-the-cat" booth
                               And He slurped his Irish Mooligan                             
                              Caught Patrick "Pat" Peter Sullivan
             And put him in the black box and played qubit with Ruth

Simba's an ornery cat says the vet

  During visits both get greatly upset

The Missing Emerald Ring

There was a cute girl named Nadine,
Who loved to snatch things that were green.
An emerald she took
From Grandmother's nook
And thought what she stole wasn't seen.

Now Granny was simply amused
To see how Nadine's face changed hues.
She asked what was that 
Inside of her hat
That looked like a ring she did lose.

Nadine then began to invent
A tale of the emerald's descent.
"The cat knocked it down.
It fell on my crown.
Been stuck in my hair ever since."

Well Granny could not be beguiled 
From the looks of an "innocent" child
"Oh dear, it got snared?
Let's cut off your hair!",
Said she in a tone oh so mild.

Nadine shrieked, "Oh please don't do that!
It really was not the poor cat.
I took your grand ring
For the praises it'd bring.
I should not have acted like that!"

Wealthy Cats

A wealthy old cat lover named Rover
To save money called his idlers over
Gave dough to his cats
Who became very fat
And slept under his bed and its cover

Once rich they became very slim
Enrolled in fanciest gym
Forgot  about taxes
Enjoyed expensive waxes
'til their pile-o-change became dim 

The tax man, obsessed with this cash flow
A miserly old fellow named Moe
was greatly shocked
His bottom  rocked
To see the hep cats without any dough

                                             The dish had to diffuse
                                        And he croaked out the news
                                "Cat,You're a bit odd; sort of a queer fish."

The Intruder

A lizard snuck into the house,
So I called out loud to my spouse:
"Come get this green reptile
before the cat goes projectile."
Thank goodness it wasn't a mouse.

Spider Bill

A boy had a spider called Bill
which gave his sister always a chill
one day a cat came into their house
but instead of catching a mouse
she had eaten up poor little Bill

Sue and King were just married 
In the night they were harried 
By the cat and mouse 
In their grave top house 
Where they were freshly buried 

Winter lizards are henpecked 
Don’t trust them if they are baked 
When clock strikes ten at night 
They gather guts to fight 
The fried fleas in the plate caked 

In Eden there was a thief 
He planned to steal Eve’s fig leaf 
He burglarized the house 
Pounced on Adam’s spouse 
And he found a mound of beef

                                      My little squid Urian was blue
                             One day she vanished without trace no clue
                                           I called my cat Binger
                                            Fed him a fish finger
                                 He confessed he took blue for a glue

                          Kyd my cat played hooky from giddy-up to whoa
                              I had to send him to the land of Mauna Loa
                                    He changed from bad to worse
                                           By debits to my purse
                                 "Papa","I am Cavity the cat boana boa"

Gotta Love Her

Not the brightest bulb in the pack I'll have you know
A real beauty but her brain was slow
Her thinking was jumbled don't you see
Thought Meow Mix was a cat cd
Was honored to be on the Jerry Springer Show !
