(C)opycat

I tried to photocopy the cat.

How profusely I bleed.

The cat is sleeping now. I should do the same.

Sharing the Rug

Apologies to the author of this poem. Who are you?

See, I remember hearing this rhyme as a child. I didn’t write it myself, but it’s too good not to share, so …


Thanks for laying the carpet Dad. 
Thanks for showing me how. 
But, what’s that lump in the middle there, 
That keeps on saying “Meeow”?

Latin

Well, now it just gets silly …

The cat couldn’t care less. She has been sleeping in an undisclosed location. All I know is that she’s inside – which means she can come wake me up when she determines that it is time for her breakfast. She doesn’t like cuddles but she does enjoy sitting on my lap – especially if I’m watching TV, or trying to read. She chirps and meows at me. I talk back in English. We enjoy a mutual incomprehension. If only we both spoke common Latin.

Hard-Drive Talking Blues

I imagine the rhythm of this poem in the form of a Dylan “talking blues”
Until I lose the plot and hit you with the CCR reference. You’ll have to find your own way from there.

Was using a fancy computer one day
Asked the hard-drive what it had to say
It said “I’ve been driving hard all week”
“Now I just want to sit and spin for a while”

And or course the cat was her usual self
Leering at me from the highest shelf
I said “cut that out”
But she kept on leering
Must be out of cat-food

Well, in the kitchen, washing dishes
After a meal so delicious
I let the water drain from the sink
Watched it spin for a while
Coriolis effect

Big hard-drive keep on turnin’
Good pussy, keep on purring
