A Little Thanks Up The Ranks!

So the cat noticed something the other day, actually a while ago now at my bay, you just can't say thanks and move on. Whether you mean it or not as you shout it from the front lawn.

Thanks for this,
Thanks for the bliss.
Thanks and thanks.
Screw the banks.

Whoops, that's not thanks.
Scratch that from the ranks.
You'll thank me later.
Also avoid a gator.

Double thanks for me.
Get it at my sea?
No thank you?
Thankfully more will come due.

Thanks a lot.
A thankful plot.
Thanks a million.
Why not a billion?

Thanks a ton.
Was a ton done?
Thanks for everything.
Easy summation ring.

Have it now?
Thankfully, wow.
Didn't take you long.
So sing along.

Thanks with extra thanks.
That a movie with Tom Hanks?
I thank you a whole lot.
My, aren't you hot to trot.

Have I thanked you today?
Yes, now go away.
I have to thank you again.
As bad as an old thanking hen.

Thanks with a hand shake.
Pffft OCD says go jump in a lake.
Everyone here thanks you.
So that means more than two?

Can't you just say it one way,
Instead of an exaggeration at your bay?
I made fun so are you crying?
No? Thanks for trying.

Do you add extra to thanks? Are you one of the super duper thanks ranks? Thanks for telling me. I need to thank thee. How much more can I thank you? Can I get a thankful clue? I will stop my thankful sass. Thanks for reading another post from my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    Not even on a platter -Oh waiter?
    Tom Hanks loved that mermaid chick
    Didn't make him feel like a total um... stick
    Thank you for the non-invitation to Bora Beach
    Would you say it's slightly out of reach?

  16. With a thank you you can't go wrong
    as long as it's sincere and not too long
    unless of course you are writing a song
    a thank you, thank you, sing-a-long

    1. A sing a long
      May sound wrong
      If it gets stuck in a head
      And causes much dread

  22. Hmm...might be guilty of that one.
    I say "Thank you so very much" a ton.
    Geesh, you're hard to please.
    At least they are grateful, so don't tease!
    I suppose a thank you gift would really be too much.
    You probably hate that kind of stuff! haha.

  24. Thanking does no harm
    Doesn't set off a bell or alarm
