Queen of her stage

There once was a canary full of rage.
Who shrewdly trapped a sly cat in her cage.
Without a feather ruffled
and Kittie's meows muffled,
she now ruled the roost, as queen of her stage!

Seventh Inning Streach

Cagey Canary Cat Caught

You love to chase the old cow,
and make the kitten go meow,
I have put you in your place,
now no one left to chase.
I got you~let me take a bow.

Sky Witch

once an old witch from dunderry

did ride on something quite scary

did it sing did it dance

did it wear checkered pants

no twas a hairy canary.

Big Bird

A famous TV star is called 'Big Bird'
At Thanksgiving he's at a loss for words --
   His fellow birds are eaten
   Down is his spirit beaten --
What eight-foot canary is not absurd?

Lithe As a Fairy

Eating sensibly is the name of the game No more gorging, that's not good for our frame Getting lithe as a fairy Singing like a canary Happy as poop I'm no longer shamed

Cagey Canary

The canary sat atop his cage,
And thought to himself, I got you Paige!
While Paige sat trapped in tight,
Thinking about the fight,
And plotting to kill in angry rage.

Just saying my canary was alive before you got here Could it be your perfume? No offence to you, my dear Common sense has eluded me Need more tact I agree Should have said, you're prettier that you appear!

A Tone-Deaf Woman

A tone-deaf woman in Tucumcari 
made a wish to sing like a canary
Her perpetual sadness
has now turned to gladness
It’s just eat, tweet and be merry!

A Talking Canary

Three manic morons: Moe, Curly, Larry
  Ante up for a talking canary ~
    It attracts boobirds
    They cry, 'How absurd' ~ 
  Clever jokers rename her 'Miss Carrie'

Saw Trump In a Cemetary

Saw Trump In A Cemetary

We just saw Trump in a cemetary
Looking at grave of his cute canary;
With all his followers;
Blooming idiot flowers;
Moved to city declared a sanctuary.

Two drops of blood a pinch of fur
In the pot she started to stir
Then a magic word
That none of us heard
We wondered what next would occur

The boiling water was scary
A monster ugly and hairy
We were all afraid
For what had she made
It was just a green canary

A Canary and Cat Tale

A clever, caged yellow canary
tricked his foe, a cat big and scary.
He flew out with some luck.
Cat walked in and got stuck.
 Silly cat should have been more wary.

Picture Prompt Rasputin Putin The Boot In

    Rasputin Putin the Boot In

I once had a canary called Rasputin,
Who just loved putting the boot in,
In his cage full of rage,
The aggressor upstaged,
Why, it's where you belong feline Putin.

Bush Had Become Legendary

Bush Had Become Legendary

In choir, Bush was known to be legendary; 
Had heard he could sing just like a canary; 
We realized, 
Milk homogenized; 
Scare cows who they did milk daily in dairy.

He never tried to milk anyone and was the
kindest President we will have ever known.

Cat and canary at odds through the day A game of chase hunts his delicious prey But Tweety turns tables Just like Aesop’s fables End game birdy tweets, hubris doesn’t pay!

Tom thought in his nine lives he saw it all, He languorously preyed on weak and small, Times change, tweet they, Tom’s now the prey - His predator triumphantly stands tall

Leery Canary

My canary keeps a pet cat;
that used to be sat on a mat,
but now it is caged
and slightly enraged;
to the bird, it’s just tit for tat!

Crafty Maneuver

The house cat unlatched the cage door; Squeezed in to then find he's done for. A quick turn-about Canary flew out! Cat's stuck, and bird's free to explore!

I Spell a Cat - Picture Prompt

The life of a magicians cat is dread
Especially when old spells are misread
He magicked a canary
But alas, O'contrary
I ended up in the darn cage instead

Sage Bird

There once was a yellow canary sage, 
Who trapped a naughty cat in a cage
With feathers so bright, 
It plotted all night, 
Till the cat escaped and ate it in rage.
