Hold Your Breath As We Bring On Death!

The cat was thinking the other day what if he up and croaked at his bay, then the posts would continue to go and no replies would show. Maybe a death post set a year in the future should be written. Then at least one day all would know why the cat was no longer smitten.

Then that brought on this,
Little bit of non bliss.
Might lose your breath,
With good old death.

Seems to be a dirty word,
One that people flips the bird.
Like it will get them shot,
Or make them fry in a pot.

That would be a bad way to go,
Stew for a witch at her show.
Or attacked by a killer crow.
Could happen, you never know.

A billion ways to croak.
Let that little tidbit soak.
Odds are it won't occur,
But you could even choke on fur.

Death by hairball.
That would get a cat call.
Maybe you should learn to cough them up,
It can even be done by a pup.

But then we already went down that road,
Heck, you could die on the commode.
Why is it people run in fear?
Is it in their genes when the word they hear?

Gonna happen one day.
Of course if you see danger run the hell the other way.
But just a word, oh no.
Under the bed you have to go.

Waste your time fearing death,
And you waste another breath.
One by one they add together,
And you can no longer enjoy the weather.

Unless you like the view of ground,
Or being burnt and flying around.
Then you wasted time for what you like,
So I guess you got a strike.

It will come when it comes,
So one can run and flap their gums,
Or just live the best they can until poof,
You get crushed by a faulty roof.

Think a death post is a good idea at my sea? Set it 50 years ahead with glee. Fear the word do you? Pfft is all I can say at my zoo. No time to worry about such a pass. It will come when it comes to my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  4. "Maybe a death post set a year in the future"
    Morbid sort of suggestion but can be a bother
    A little tryout
    Not a shout-out
    But something some may want to consider

    1. Morbid by a bit
      Bit still have to consider it
      If you go poof
      No one will know and think it could be a blog goof

    2. That's an interesting thought. I have 6 months worth of posts already written and set to publish so no one would know for a long time. I told hubby to go on all my accounts and let people know in case it happens though.

    3. Not sure the cat can do that for me
      If I kick that bucket at my sea

  10. Preset posts ten-twenty years from now. Then long after you've quit blogging, a post will occasionally show up to confuse people.

  11. That is one brave cat in your header. You are so right, when death comes, nothing we can do about. Great idea to put a post to go on 10 years from now.

  12. Just plain dying ain't nothing to fear
    It's "how" you go, puts cry in the beer
    To die at home, peace, in your bed
    Love ones around you with no med
    That's the way most want to go
    Without the tubes of a medic show
    People now panic and in a scare

  15. Three fighting for the no.1 spot, ha ~ You can prepare one if you like, but I think one's perspective of death changes over time, specially when you are like in your 60s or 70s ~ Enjoy the long weekend Pat ~

  17. I take comfort in reading stories from people who have died and come back. The stories are always the same--white light, a separation from their body, a feeling of complete peace, and they could see things that were going on in the room around them. They actually often feel disappointed to have to come back. So perhaps there's something to look forward to!

  19. I honestly thought of writing such a post
    in advance to have it ready when it came to happen
    that a certain dog was no longer with us
    as I knew it would be hard to write it then.

    No fear of death
    know where I'm going
    have more fear of how fast the days seem to fly
    and wish there was a bit of slowing.

  23. Death by Ebola is now what Americans fear
    Really? You'll more likely be killed by an angry deer
    That gets pissed off at Santa for not feeding him right
    And from the North pole takes a big flight
    Months before Xmas to find you st your home
    Then run over you with your grandma, that bore
    You'll be dead but shall worry 'bout Ebola no more.

  26. You'll tackle anything, Pat! So many people are afraid to say the word "death." And no one "dies" anymore ~ one "passes." I love that you threw death out there. Whatever happens later, I'm grateful to be healthy and happy now. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Here's a link to a grim reaper gag:
