Are You Trying To Speak A Little Greek?

Ever meet those nuts that can't say yes or no? They just say some crap thing at their show. I guess those words are too hard to say or maybe their brain gets zapped when they say them at their bay.

Words are grand,
Across the land.
Forget yes or no,
Away we go.

It was such fun,
Almost exactly done.
Kinda relevant too,
At least to you.

An amateur expert is at play.
That has to cause expert experts dismay.
A new classic in the making,
It is mine for the taking.

That was one bright night.
Dark yet there was light?
Made up by a butthead,
While lying in bed?

I like being a wise fool,
And at least I don't drool.
It it so terribly nice,
And well worth the price.

Has a tense calm come over you?
What are you to do?
Call me toll free.
I have a phone in a tree.

You have even odds.
Of reaching cats or cods?
We have to keep this equally diverse,
Or some people may curse.

Maybe I need to go to Greece,
Avoid this fighting for peace.
Might get caught half naked though,
Or half dressed at my sow.

Are you a big man child,
Out and about running wild?
Maybe modestly arrogant instead?
Think on what I said.

So is that a firm maybe?
Can I take that as a yes from thee?
A definite maybe you say?
So that is a no at play?

Get each oxymoron at my sea? Or did they fly over the head of thee? Isn't it fun when they give you such crap instead of a yes or no lap? I guess it beats a bunch of sass directed toward my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  3. A firm maybe is invariably a big no
    Heard it uttered many times before
    Beating around the bush
    Not wanting to push
    Just walk away not bother anymore

    1. Walking away

  4. A definite maybe, that's what people like to do,
    and it definitely (not maybe) drives me crazy here at my zoo!

  5. The ability to say yes or no
    it's proven more will say yes
    when they mean no at their show
    causing them even more stress
    let me ponder it over a cup of joe
    leaving your there to try and guess
    just speak your opinion let it flow
    I don't really know some will confess
    leaving you a maybe, as they go
    now, that was an answer to impress
    what do you think of Van Gogh
    hmm..I like his art more or less
    to say yes or no some are slow
    creating a yes and no mess..
    now your head is saying Whoa..

    Have a good day Pat and his cats

    1. haha look at you go
      With the yes or no
      Even threw in Van Gough
      Why? i don't know
      Yes i do
      But no I gave a view
      A yes or a no
      People can't truthfully crow
      But then there are those
      Who wiggle their toes
      And go why why why
      If you don't lie

  9. Too many think that the more they say
    The smarter they'll look at their bay;
    But since brevity is the soul of wit
    They've shown themselves off as complete idjits.

  11. i know a few oxymorons,
    and fifty cent words only cloud the deficiency
    on the mentally inept, you got to compensate somewhere
    ha, when you feel little at your lair, i like to have a bit of
    fun with meaning though, you can stretch a verse
    & blo the flow, you know.

    1. Stretch and pull
      Until the verse is full

  12. This sounds a bit like my new boss. Many of her answers are like a coin toss--uh, but still stuck in the air at her lair. So, was that a yes or no? Guess the board will have to decide at their next show.

  27. Anthony Hopkins the actor used to get pestered to promote film scripts, particularly while he was eating , beyond the point of tolerance. So he started saying 'What part of no, don't you understand'. I'd just fire a forkful of food at them, if they can dodge the pasta maybe their action script has some substance..

  32. I can say the yes and no

    that maybe I should be less committal
