This And That From The Cat!

A this and that you may be expecting today, but will there be a this or a that on display? I guess the word is there for all of you as you stare. Can you stare and read at the same time? Maybe leave that for another rhyme.

This and that,
Where it's at.
That and this,
Gets no bliss.

Tit for tat,
Chews the fat.
Tat for tit,
Sounds dirty a bit.

Fair and square,
Is not so rare.
Square and fair,
Just gets a glare.

Love and hate,
Takes the bait.
Hate and love,
Gets a shove.

Black and blue,
Sure comes due.
Blue and black,
Hangs on the rack.

Doom and gloom,
Counts for doom.
Gloom and doom,
Just goes kaboom.

Ball and chain,
Can feel pain.
Chain and ball,
Does nothing at all.

Beck and call,
Stands nice and tall.
Call and beck,
Is always in check.

Bells and whistles,
Shoot like missiles.
Whistles and bells,
Get shoved down wells.

The birds and the bees,
Sure do please.
The bees and the birds,
Count only as turds.

The cat could go on all day. Betsy, is to be thanked for this array. She didn't like that and this. That really makes her hiss. Maybe that and this the cat will have to use a ton. I know there are many to give a run. Could make ten posts with it. But this will do at my rhyming pit. I am done with my backwards sass and the that and this from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. HELLO CAT!
    We need to chat
    How come Suza's keyboard is a mess?
    She may need a new one, I guess
    Good thing money doesn't make us happy today
    Except when you need a vacation at your bay
    Oh well, I might as well stay if that's okay
    One more bill and I'll jump
    Wish I were a Blue Trump
    Except for the hair
    Making you stare
    Can be quite a scare
    No flair there
    Do you know what I mean
    At the Kitty Cat scene?
    Could this be 11 in a row
    At your Kitty Cat show?

    1. 11 indeed
      Sure took seed
      Being a trump
      With a wallet so plump
      Would sure be grand
      But yeah, the hair I couldn't stand
      Although with that kind of dough
      Bet one could make it regrow

  10. I'm a bit worried about you considering you have stanzas starting with love and hate, black and blue, doom and gloom, ball and chain, and beck and call. Do we need to schedule some therapy? I have a wonderful therapist on speed dial. LOL

    Replies
    1. hmmmm if you look really closely it may seem troubled
      Plus i did them backwards so my therapy should be doubled?

  11. A little bit of this and that keeps things in perspective, no doubt.

  13. That is so true
    at my zoo.
    My OCD
    would be in a dizzy.
    Could never say that and this
    it would surely bring a hiss.
    It just doesn't have the same ring
    and you just can't make it sing!

    1. You'd hiss at your sea?
      That I'd need to see
      So maybe a that and this more
      So you aren't whelmed at your shore lol

  19. A little of this, a little of that keeps the Cat full of rhyming sass. That's the best I could do Cat.

    Hey, I'll be gone for a while, but I will pop in to see you and few other folks. Not every day, but I don't want to lose touch with you like I did on my last extended break.

  32. LOL! You've been on a word play run
    in recent posts under your sun.

    But the End of the Day was rather gloomy,
    followed so closely by aliens doomy.

    I wouldn't bet against cockroaches though,
    I'd sic them on those crazies at your show.

    But the best of all was Lazy Kombat
    and a new book by Mr. Hatt!

  34. It's kind of like when you have friends that are a couple. You get used to saying their names in a particular order - "Let's go to Jenn and Jeremy's." Jenn always come first, so if you put Jeremy first at some point, it just doesn't sound right.
