When Said You Get Dread!

The cat knows you humans must be nuts, or maybe you are taking cues from mutts. Either way, all you can do is say, hey. If you're lucky maybe talk about the weather when you all come together. But been there done that. There is one more you hide under your hat. The conversation starter that makes one go oh no! You can sometimes create a foe.

We have to talk!
Go, take a walk.
It is generally bad.
No fun will be had.

Promise not to get mad?
Means something bad was had.
If you promise you may lie.
But go ahead, give it a try.

Can I ask you something?
It has a familiar ring.
Meaning they are afraid to ask.
So might not be a fun task.

I have something to tell you.
Time for you to shoo.
It probably won't please.
Or could be a nice tease.

Can you follow me?
Run away, flee!
They either want to fire you,
Or go all Deliverance when out of view.

"Name" do you....
They want something new.
Run far far away.
To a new galaxy they say.

Are you busy?
Do I look dizzy?
But yes I am anyway.
I don't want to do what you say.

What are you doing tomorrow?
Something that won't bring me sorrow.
Unless I have to help you.
I know, so mean at my zoo.

Will you be around later?
See you, alligator.
But then again might not be so bad.
Things could go rather umm glad.

Would you mind doing such and such a thing?
Yep, but you knew that it would sting.
Yet you still want it done.
Aren't you're in trouble conversation starters fun?

The cat just rolls his eyes when these come due. I know something bad is going to come from you. Are you trying to soften the blow? Did I miss any with today's rhyming show? You humans sure have them in mass. You beat around the bush unlike my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  8. "I love you, but..."
    Gets people kicked out of this hut
    If you say I love you to sell
    Whatever rudeness, that's emotional blackmail.

    And I'll "Now LISTEN" you at my bay!

  10. Talk talk, watch the clock
    In the mouth stuff a sock
    Say it big and say it true
    Maybe even say it blue
    Sing about "I love Carina"
    Find a cozy French Marina
    If it's small talk from your lips
    Send good motion to the hips
    You're better off to dance and sing
    Then just add small talk for some zing

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good motion in the hips
      Hmm that could be fine trips
      May make some stutter though
      As to the gutter I go
      What? Dancing was it?
      That counts a bit

  18. I hate it when The Hubby says "We need to talk" My first response is "What bad thing happened?" or "Are you mad at me?" That phrase makes my stomach sick.

    He hates "Are you busy?" because it means I want to go out somewhere and I want him to come with me. And I always ask that question when he clearly is busy doing something. Irritates the hell out him.

    1. haha yeah the we need to talk never goes over well
      It can sure cause hell
      lol funny how you say it when he is
      Wanting to go out and about and take care of some biz
