A Little Scare For Your Lair!

So Manzanita sent the cat a bunch of phobias at his bay and the cat just had to use them to play. Some of them may scare those out there who have them at their lair. I mean dirt is so scary. I suppose it could be if things were dropped there by something hairy.

Alliumphobia is so grand.
Vampires will love you across the land.
For you fear their fear.
Garlic is smelly, I hear.

Anthophobia is so great.
No money needs to be spent on a date.
At least on the typical part.
You'll run in fear of flowers that come from the heart.

Botanophobia is one for you.
No vegetarian allowed at your zoo.
Fear of plants big and small.
I wonder if grass counts at their hall?

Bufonophobia won't get you a kiss,
If a spell has stopped your bliss.
Turned into a toad you may remain,
As the buffoons are afraid of you at your lane.

Dendrophobia is oh so scary too!
Watch out, they may bite you.
Those trees can really move and grow.
Soon they will step on your toe.

Entomophobia would be no fun for me,
Then I'd have nothing to eat at my sea.
Fear of insects is one many a human has indeed.
They are nasty buggers that grow like a weed.

Scoleciphobia will leave you at home,
When the fisherman go out to roam.
Manzanita may even be classified by this,
As those nasty worms ruin her bliss.

Rupophobia people find dirt scary.
It must grow more than a berry.
I guess digging up buried treasure,
Would also not give them any pleasure.

Ornithophobia would make one paranoid,
And they'd fall in to a dark void,
If they visited Betsy's sea.
Those birds would be oh so scary.

Myrmecophobia goes marching on,
Okay, maybe not out on the lawn.
For with ants marching one by one,
Hurrah won't be said as you turn and run.

There are some things to strike fear today. Toads, ants, plants, trees and birds are so scary on display. Are you in full on panic mode now? I bet you are going to have a cow. I mean those big words must be scary in mass.  They are just oh so, not really, scary to my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. A bunch of phobias can be scary and confusing
    It gets on the nerves and can send one reeling
    Each has its own terminology
    They can be named quite freely
    Can obviously be scared of just about anything

  10. I LOVE phobias, not possessing them, but reading about them. I actually know someone who has the bird phobia. Really? Cute little birdies. I had to capture a bird for her because after it flew into her classroom, my friend ran out the door.

  12. This was really interesting, Pat. So many new and fun words. I actually had a kiddo who was botanophobic. I discovered it on a field trip to the Prairie Conservation Center. He was stranded between clumps of prairie grass and cacti. In the end I had to pick him up and carry him back to the road. Unreal! I'm sure Peter Jackson and his ents haven't helped those afraid of trees! Have a good day at your bay!

  13. I know a few obese people who might have botanophobia, if only because the thought of eating a vegetable is absolutely terrifying to them.
