Rules For The Day At My Bay!

You know there are rules for this and there are rules for that. But all are ignored by the cat. Yet there are some that just come anyway. I'll let you in on them today.

The rule of the cat,
The rule of the dog.
One will squash you flat,
The other, eat a brown log.

The rule of the truck,
The rule of the car.
One can be out of luck,
The other can go far.

The rule of the male,
The rule of the female.
One will always fail,
The other will need bail.

The rule of the house,
The rule of the alley.
One will eat the mouse,
The other set it free in the valley.

The rule of the movie,
The rule of TV.
One pretends to be groovy,
The other claims to be reality.

The rule of the sea,
The rule of the land.
One will drown thee,
The other pounds sand.

The rule of the tune,
The rule of the quiet.
One leads to swoon,
The other stops a Ghostbuster riot.

The rule of the hand,
The rule of the foot.
One helps you stand,
The other never stays put.

The rule of love,
The rule of hate.
Both make you wear a glove,
Just some at a different rate.

The rule of this,
The rule of that.
You do not want to miss,
What comes from the cat.

How were those for the rules of the day? Did you already know them at your bay? I just had to make them come to pass. I guess there are a few I follow with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  3. Rules are made to be broken
    In jest but rarely heard spoken
    Gets on the nerves
    Gets one on the toes
    But as long as things do function

  5. Cat knows no rules, none at all
    Cat will never come when you call
    Cat walks around like queen of the house
    When not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse
    Cat sounds off Z's in the middle of my chair
    Where can I sit, I'm tearing out my hair
    Cat demands food as she paws at my skirt
    It's saucy minx behaving like she is a flirt
    Our house was all peaceful with just dog and me
    But gotta admit, she's as precious as can be

    1. haha she has you down
      Making you run all over town
      As she wears the crown
      Even has you scooping things that are brown
      Ruler of the house
      At least she'll kill a mouse

  10. I like this. This is one of my favorites of yours really. As one in a car, I would not argue with the rule of the truck! Love definitely should rule over hate! And as for dogs and cats - ha - there really is no competition. Smiles.
