Hop That Boat Or Maybe Goat!

So once more here we are with the insecure people near and far. The cat will still help out with a little shout, even if he is too crazy to every get an insecure cloud that makes thing hazy.


Today it's boats.
Boats with goats?
Goats on boats?
Goats eat oats.

Boats you board.
Boats left stored.
Boats at sea.
Boats for thee.

The sure thing boat.
All take note.
The line is long.
Usually ends wrong.

The leaky boat.
May need a goat.
To plug each hole.
Could take its toll.

The fancy boat.
Board in a fancy coat.
With debt up the wazoo.
But the Jones's are true.

The ignored boat.
It can just float.
But not worth a try.
You would rather fly.

The sinking boat.
Too many holes to note.
But still holding on.
Dying at dawn.

The copy boat.
Has your vote.
An easy win.
Forget the sin.

The cruise ship.
Oh so hip.
Full of fake.
Have to partake.

And the row boat.
Sturdy with clout.
But work is needed.
Can it be deeded?

Have a boat you boarded yet? Failed to call off a losing bet? Failed to try another way, hopping a new boat across the bay? The boat one is on may get them to see a new dawn, but the boat not taken out, could leave them forgoing clout. Try a boat or ten no matter the class, just a thought from my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    2. haha - lets try this again with a tidbit..

      Traveling from shore to shore
      on a wondrous ship of dreams
      one never knows what's in store
      sailing realms under moonbeams

      Delete
    3. Number 2
      And a screw up from you
      Oh the shame
      But I like your claim

      Delete
    4. not a screw up a rather long blabber
      but, decided to only leave a small splatter

      Sailing the ocean of dreams I saw a humpback whale
      swimming deep oceans it seams, oracle of mystic tales

      Delete
    5. Oh what?
      Don't want to be a blabbermouth at my hut? haha
      Geez the cat lost all faith in you now
      Hopefully the whale doesn't eat the cat or turn into a cow

    6. haha oh I decided to save it for another day
      as two light hearted fools sail across the bay
      you know I will always have more to say
      sailing to faraway shores, visiting Bombay
      or riding horses in a green meadow we play
      high above a glorious sky and yellow rays
      a distant sound a couple of blue jays..
      or a few dragons we might have to slay
      when chaos breaks loose to our dismay
      or hide away in a pile of golden hay
      as the cat feast on a giant fish filet
      or dreaming of a fresh rose bouquet
      as the sea breeze gently rocks& sways

      Delete
    7. That is better at my sea
      As you blabber with glee
      Always on a rhyming spree
      And I thought hay was itchy?
      The golden stuff doesn't itch the knee?
      At least it beats a flea
      Adventures sure come to we
      As we sail upon the sea
      Damn, look what was done by me
      Used the same rhyming E
      All I have to say is weeeee lol

  2. Have a boat moored in a moat
    But don't leave it there to rot
    Pleasure rides
    Jokes aside
    Friends can come by on the dot

  3. I am number three
    Makes me want to shout with glee
    I want to take a boat somewhere far away
    To a tropical island where the palm trees sway
    I hear Bora Bora is a place of heavenly bliss
    In that paradise, nothing would be amiss

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not as heavenly as one might think
      Costs more than a brand new kitchen sink
      Like times 50 of that
      And wild dogs run free at their mat
      But other than that I suppose
      You could go and strike a pose

      Delete
  4. Growing up along the shore
    I have been on boats galore
    some were small some were big
    one a yacht and some a fishing rig
    but any that take me out to the bay
    are the ones that make my day

  5. i am all for boats,
    and with pesky neighbors even moats
    ha. just not one with a leak,
    cause then you'll sink
    and take a big drink
    which deprives you of hope.

  9. So what's to do when on a boat?
    Sit and gloat
    Where can you run, where can you hide
    Nothing to do but watch the tide
    I'll wave good-by as you sail with the fleet
    Happy to feel earth under my feet

    1. Well you can jump
      And then make those legs pump
      Swimming to the nearest shore
      There you could explore

      Delete
  10. Pat, I'm sitting here listening to the soft patter of a spring storm as I read your poem and between the two I smile.

    The last boat (canoe) I was on dumped me into the water. I'm thinking I'll just walk along the shore here. :-)

  11. I went to a dance party on a boat in Seattle. Little did I realize that leaving the party would then be a battle. Had to stay until we docked. Sadly the party was half-crocked. Wanted to swim to shore just to get out of that stupid bore.

  15. I, too, would like to see a goat on a boat! Or a goat in a moat! Or a goat somewhere remote!

    They are kind of my favorite thing, watching them makes me sing

    I especially love when they try to eat all my clothes, makes me laugh like nobody knows.
