As You Take A Whiff It Probably Is If!

So the cat sees one and all. I see everything that goes on at my hall. You humans seem to not see it though. But after this, you will see it high and low.

Humans are in shock!
Bad news decides to dock.
There it will reside.
It changes the tide.

Like they could not see,
Bad news is on a spree.
Are they blind?
Just follow my behind.

The phone rings late at night.
Prank call it just might.
But not likely I'd say.
Usually means bad news is on the way.

So let it ring and sleep.
Can wait until you are wide awake at your keep.
Has been known to mean someone is dead.
Can't do much if they already lost their head.

Get called in out of the blue,
There at your 9-5 work zoo.
Yeah, a big promotion for you.
Whoopsy, to you they bid adieu.

You really didn't see that coming?
Now out you go to drumming.
Well hopefully not that bad.
But still, time to find a new work pad.

The car starts to make noise.
Bah, just some type of joys.
The car is sure a rocking.
So just don't go a knocking.

Oopsy, the car breaks down.
Now you are stuck in Deliverance town.
If you hear banjos, run and run fast.
You don't want to become part of that cast.

Get called to the front.
You squirm up like a runt.
Look you got a big F on the test.
Damn, you are just the best.

Feel like crap all day.
Weeks on end at your bay.
Expect good news when they call?
Nope, you've got worms big, fat and tall.

Geez, you humans can't tell bad news is going to come. Trying to pretend so things aren't glum? The cat would rather just fess up to it and get it fixed. Then no need for things to get nixed. Stole that title from yesterday's rhyming pass, but that is good news from my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. HELLO CAT!
    Guess who's back on your mat
    It's a wonderful day at your bay
    Hey, let's play:
    Oh it's a wonderful day to fly to that Bora Beach
    And it's a wonderful day when you're out of bleach
    And it's a wonderful day when it's... out of reach

    Anyone joining the number one Bora Teach?
    And if I'm number two
    Well, that's fine too
    Now, where did I leave that shoe?
    HELLO HANK!

  3. O I am in shock and stuff
    When the neighbors never get enough
    Their phone rings late at night
    Blue man ready for a fight
    "Care to join us, neighbor?"
    "Have you seen my sabor?"
    I'd club their butts if they didn't like it so much
    I bet they're doing it Double Dutch
    Once got called in at the office zoo
    My money cut down to 85% boo hoo hoo
    Seven years down the line
    It was time to open up that bottle of wine
    For I had somehow managed
    To get rid of that bossy swine
    Hey did you see that coming?
    Did you like my big head drumming?
    Now it's me who's slumming
    Cat never trust the one in charge
    Or you wil end up like El Debarge

    2. This story is as true as gold
      And a story that should be told
      Don't let no big boss man keep you down
      Show the world who is the clown
      My neighbor is quiet now
      But may start moooooing like a cow

      Delete
    3. A cow moo
      Whip them with your one good shoe
      Big boss man sucks a ton
      Need to get rid of everyone
      But then I'd be broke
      And me the cats would choke

      Delete
    4. You'd get a brand new one
      A boss man that would be more fun
      You'd get a raise too
      You could buy yourself a brand new shoe

      Delete
    5. A raise would be grand
      Stay at the bora sand
      Never leaving there
      Work from home at my bora lair

    6. I could help you out
      Won't even shout
      Should buy myself a lottery ticket
      Might even take up cricket

    7. Good luck the ticket
      Better off trying to picket

  4. Daybreak. Have I anything to say
    I'll keep the dogs at bay
    While you do the unexpected
    As you steal goat undetected
    They'll never hear a thing
    An alarm will never ring
    Everything will be so normal
    Conversaton yet so formal
    But they will soon discover
    No goat they can recover
    To this I'll have to say farewell
    Caper of the month goes exceedingly swell

    1. The goat caper was a success
      But now your floor is a mess
      As the goat just goes
      Where, who knows
      Evidence everywhere
      Now at your lair
      In order to win
      Burn down your bin
      Insurance money galore
      And the goat is no more
