On Our Way Today We Do A Little Xylomancy Play!

Xylomancy is on the table today. It should be fun to do at my bay. It is the art of defining the past, present or future through the shape of a twig. I guess it beats the dung of a pig.


 So these twigs say,
The future is in disarray.
See it is one big mess.
You saw that, confess.

Or maybe the past went boom.
It was all doom and gloom.
Those aliens came with the probe,
They got all ancient humans across the globe.


 This one states today,
You will have something to say.
Just look at the comments below!
Yippee, I'm right at my show.

But it also says to me,
That tomorrow you will come to my sea.
There you will have your say.
Damn, I'm good at this at my bay.


 This one says in the future cats will fly.
We will soar through the sky.
Our tails will just spin.
I consider that a win.

But it says your past sucks.
You got pecked by ducks.
They ate all your bread.
You cried all night in bed.


 This one states stay away.
It holds bees that cause dismay.
You will get stung from foot to ass,
If you try and trespass.

It also says the past was great,
For those with an outlaw trait.
They went to fight at high noon.
While tumbleweeds danced under the moon.


 And finally we have a sunny day.
What more can it really say?
There will be sun.
Go out and have some fun.

But the future has rain.
That is just a pain.
And you'll leave your window down too.
That was not very smart of you.

There we are you have just been xylomancy-ed at my bar. Did you see what I saw? If no, it is okay you have such a flaw. Just keep trying your xylomancy skills. One day you can do it to pay the bills. Now I will eat a twig like bass because they are so tasty to my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  5. Oh yeah, I've been meaning to tell you my son loves our latest Pat Hatt download on the Kindle. He likes me to read it because he laughs out loud when I say 'pay to pee.' He's a silly one, let me tell you. He also likes the bad guy... he always likes the bad guy. Should I be worried??? Nah, Golden Cat is drawn pretty cute. :)

  10. I cleaned up sticks in my yard this week
    they caused my back to tweak
    when I carried them in a bag
    I should have lit them with gas and rag
    sent them up in a flame
    cause they are to blame
    for my injured back
    how will I attack the cat?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well you did too much work
      Sore back is not a perk
      Hate it at my sea
      Each day it plagues me
      But you should have got a flame
      And not have been tame
      Stick it over the branches a bit
      Then pass gas on it
      Boom, instant fire
      Just don't let the flames rise higher

      Delete
    2. If my boys were here at home
      gas could have roamed
      from out of their rears
      and sent us to tears
      but flames would have been high
      and smoke would have filled the sky!

    or simply outrageous

    Is that what it says, dear?
    I'm not prolific in 'twig'

    1. Wow, mouthy today
      Here at my bay
      Look what sticks can do
      Want stones to come due?
      The cat can find much
      Even if one doesn't want to touch
      Will go anywhere
      So viewers beware
      Might raise your neck hair
      Or show stuff that is rare
      I'm sure if down deep you dig
      You could dance a jig
      Film it though
      And show all at your show

    2. Some times my comments here
      are longer than my posts, I fear.
      No jigs I will dance
      Although I sing and prance
      with my wooden spoon mic
      which I think is nice.
      Only when nobody is looking
      while I do some cooking.
