Not To Mention Gets Some Attention!

So it's time to mention that which escapes your attention. Or maybe the correct word is ignore. Either way it is still there at your shore. What would that be? Well just listen a little old me. Or ignore me to. I do it to Pat all the time at our zoo.

So away we go,
Looking for a show.
What do you see?
That person you hate horribly.

Bang! Their dead.
Yippeee you said.
Then comes the mention,
Now forever you watch the soap in detention.

Let's jump from a plane.
Or jump onto a moving train.
Not to mention you might turn flat?
Kinda like Brian the flat cat.

Let's rob a bank,
So we can fill our gas tank.
Not to mention you may get shot.
That could hurt a whole lot.

Let's tell off the boss.
Or strangle them with floss.
One way you get fired.
Another you could get a promotion and hired.

Not to mention never be tired.
Unless of course your bunkmate is sired.
Then there is that fancy car.
Or maybe even the tip jar.

With a little work,
It could lead to quite the perk.
The owner could track you down,
Giving you a hole in the head instead of a crown.

Not to mention you could crash and burn.
At least you could initially fill the urn.
Unless you blew away.
Not to mention that would save some pay.

You could also cross a cat.
You may only get a bat.
Maybe even a brand new scar.
Not to mention we'll track you down no matter how far.

Then you might not take out the trash.
You could then see your life flash,
Right before your eyes.
Did I forget to mention pissing off the wife isn't wise?

How's that for a mention? Did it keep your attention? No, need to mention it. I know I'm always a hit. I just sit here and give lots of sass. Not to mention I'm a little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. To get some attention try to be outlandish
    May not get a croc but may still land a fish
    A matter of showdown
    Uplift up the crown
    Otherwise there's still some protein for a dish

  7. Funny post I laughed a bunch
    Crash and burn more than a crunch
    Sad but just to fill the urn
    Everyone has to take their turn
    To blow away is kinda neat
    Saving expenses, a real big treat

  10. I've had bosses I wanted to strangle
    Or even partially mangle
    But I always refrain
    Even whey're a pain
    Maybe someday I'll rob a bank
    And then get away with a full gas tank

  13. I accidentally yelled at one of my bosses once. Then I burst into tears and started apologizing profusely. She really was a terrible boss, though. She got fired a few months later. :)

  15. The only thing getting my attention it the snake in the basement. I envision so many scenarios where he has the upper hand, or she raises her babies under my feet. Very uncomfortable here at my zoo!

  18. If only we could fill our gas tanks
    With grease and refuse from the trash
    Then to the garbage man we'd say, "Thanks!"
    As we steal his bags and then haul ash.

  20. How's that for attention?/Well, the cat has certainly shown progression/because since the last time I was here/he has managed to strangle his boss with a floss and rob a bank. You could say he has built himself a career! :-)

  21. 'Not to mention' is just a warning
    that the mention is actually coming!
    I bet that phrase drives you crazy
    and makes your patience a little hazy!

    1. haha yeah that and "with all due respect"
      Both gets neglect
      As one comes anyway
      And the other has no due respect at play

  25. Yup, I think you're exactly right about a brand new scar if you try to cross a cat and a bat. Maybe you'd get a ding-bat cat.

  26. To get attention
    you must buck convention,
    Dance nude in street
    or like Gaga wear meat.
    Paint your face yellow
    and play the cello.
    Don't know a song?
    Then dress like King Kong.
    It's all a matter
    of creating chatter.

    1. The second leads to promotion if you don't get caught
      For after he's dead someone will need to fill his spot
