A Canine Comes To Visit The Cat Thanks To The dVerse Mat!

No mutts sniffing butts line today at my bay. For there is one the cat even respects at bush number three and with the dVerse statue play over at their sea, I figured I'd give him a run for it must be done.

A defined symbol lost.
Numbed by life's frost.
Knowledge carried within,
Found at the corner trash bin.

Allowance triggered, dismissing regret,
Gurgling deeper in superficial debt.
Going once riddance of worth,
Sprinkling storm upon earth.

Introverted invention stacking waste,
Blind to transparent paste.
Enlightened sale from mouse scroll,
Dollar a dozen, sell your soul.

Trivial indulgence of fame,
Antagonizing loss of shame.
Numbered in crowded mist,
Insignificant to polished list.

Irony blistering ego pours,
Wallowing in credit scores.
Swallowed trappings of shit,
Cobbled together webs knit.

Superior claims birth mountains,
Stock rising in penny fountains.
Wishes deaf on prying ears,
Championed by lingering fears.

Whimsical crossroads dance,
Faithless last gutter chance.
Dollar a dozen excluded baker,
Contracting forth another acre.

Designed fault seeking latch,
Naked eyes whispering match.
Confident approval applicant,
Melding into establishment.

Aggregation ventured, aggregation gained,
Wrists blemished once chained.
Numbed from twisted knife,
Defining symbol lost to life.

In death given birth,
To nothing of moments worth.
Argued superior failed to behold,
The canines loyalty in dismissing sold.

So the cat went a bit more profound than usual I guess and over a mutt I will confess. But he had something most humans lack, as they try to make it first down the track, shoving all those to the side in their so called quest for pride. Hachiko is the name of the dog in the statue above and loyalty is what the cat is referring to, which fits him like a glove.

Saw his human off at the train station every morning and waited until night, when the train would pull in and his human was once more in sight. Even after his human passed away, he stayed there day after day waiting for his return no matter the weather mother nature decided to spurn. Until the very day he passed as well and now there a statue does dwell. Didn't need or want gold and braved the cold, another reason animals beat most humans any day and that's all the Face it Facts today at my bay. There was my monthly profound pass and that is all from my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    1. for the record, before you burn down the pub after claudias comment gave you a rub the wrong way, i have two cats out my way, but this again is about loyalty, which is a choice each make, to keep it home of have a feast of clam & snake, but pups got it going on, so honoring them is good in your hood,,,nice cadence and rhyme i would say this all the time though.

    2. LOL I won't throw you out to hard
      Maybe just a boot across the yard
      But yeah they are pretty loyal to a fault
      But so are the cats at my vault
      Takes a little more effort to do
      As they are as needy as the canine crew

      Yeah they have that going on
      From dusk until dawn
      The cat will not disagree
      Until Pat brings one to bush number three
      Then the shit will hit the fan
      And I will scratch to death that man...haha

      Doing something like that

      But usually less loyalty is found
      And they just go about their day
      Chasing rats at their bay

  6. You've got some interesting images and rhymes here about the rat race anf its effect on us. The dog who waits for its master coming home is very effective. Don't know if my Chihuahua would do that, but at least he greets me at the door like I've just returned after years of travel!

  8. Maybe I'm a little sensitive b/c it's not even 9am yet and I didn't have coffee yet, but that almost made me tear! That poor little pooch stood in front of the train station until he died? People saw that dog sitting there every single day and no one tried to save him? Sigh...

    I've heard crazy stories about dogs loyalty to their owners all the time. It's amazing how loyal dogs are to their owners. My little wiener pooches would fight to the death for us. They get so protective when certain people come over. They've never steered us wrong in letting us know who shouldn't be in our house.

    1. I can make you spit and tear up
      One with and one without your coffee cup..hahaha
      He would not go from the train station no matter what
      They'd take him to another hut
      And he'd come back and wait
      At any rate
      They fed him and kept him company at times
      But he would not leave no matter their chimes
      Yeah dogs know who should not be there
      Them and kids have a sixth sense of sorts when some weirdo is in your lair
      Cats just think everyone is a weirdo and hide
      Staring back with their eyes open wide..hahaha

      Delete
    2. Ok, now that I have my coffee I can come back. LOL

      LOL Sigh...I guess I had that coming! So Sad!!

      Our first wiener pooch (Sir Reginald), lived with us for about 2 years. After about 2 years, we planned a vacation and he clearly couldn't tag along. We contacted the breeder and she agreed to watch him. We got close with her and we knew she would take great care of our baby! He got so upset that he was dropped off there that he shimmied like spider man over the dog fence outside and ran away. The breeder found him the next day shaking under her car. When we came to pick him up he was SO happy to see us. Poor baby had separation anxiety!

    3. hahaha yeah stepped into that one
      So had to give it a run..haha
      The story is from Japan too
      Meaning it's prob known by your work crew

      Yeah they hate when you go
      But even more so when taken to a different show
      Poor weiner pooch had no idea what was going on
      And just tried to get back to his own lawn
      I had to leave Miss Priss at mom's once a while back
      And when I came to get her I stayed the weekend at that shack
      She would not let me out of her sight
      Followed me everywhere day and night
      Slept on my bag and made sure she came with back to her shore
      She if walked right in the travel cage which she detests as soon as I opened the door....haha

      Delete
    4. I knew it was Japanese right away by the name! LOL!!

      Awww, poor Miss Priss! She was so confused. Well now that you have two cats, ever separate them? Omg, God forbid we take only one dog to the vet. The other one sits and waits at the door whining for his brother to come home!

      Delete
    5. They haven't been seperated for long
      But the cat gets upset when she leaves him alone and runs around meowing like a ding dong
      As I've had to take her to the vet too
      Miss Priss doesn't care though between me and you
      She's happy to be rid of the pest for a while I think
      But just as happy when he comes back to her rink

      Name him off that anime show that I've seen play?

    2. I did. You're the only person to get where that came from!! I had him at the vet once and this lady in the waiting room found the name offensive. She said "Why would you give a proper British dog a silly name like that?" She was obviously a Protestant and I should have turned her to stone by having priest look at her.

  26. such a cool story, loyalty indeed. profound piece you say, well yes I was saying that to myself as I read this most excellent read. and now this dog has been immortalized on internet print, on a cat's website none the less, perhaps he's happy where he now is, or perhaps as I'm sure he got his owner back and a cat's admiration, well for that any dog would appreciate that
