Whelmed Today At My Bay!

Are you now underwhelmed with me? Are you overwhelmed with glee? Are you just whelmed today? Are you annoyed with the questions on display? See where this is going? You will be whelmed with my showing.

Over, under around and through,
Well at least two are true.
Over and under,
Sound off like thunder.

Overwhelmed, underwhelmed,
But whelmed is never helmed.
Why is that?
Normal is a bad stat?

Underlying, overlying,
No lying is given a trying?
Is sleeping bad?
Not for my pad.

Underpriced, overpriced,
Priced just got diced.
For no matter the price,
Some times it isn't nice.

Undershot, overshot,
But shot is never hot to trot.
Then who wants to be shot?
It would hurt a lot.

Undertax, overtax,
With tax no one can relax.
Piss off the IRS,
And you are in a tax mess.

Overworked, underworked.
Worked is not clerked.
For you are doing it wrong,
If just worked sings its song.

Underused, overused,
Used just sounds abused.
So maybe not being used,
Leaves one amused.

Overtaken, Undertaken.
Taken you aren't makin.
Why is that?
Beats the cat.

Underwrote, over wrote.
Wrote is the right note.
For it was the same,
With my over, under claim.

Did you catch on? Are you over my con? Under my spell? Did this confuse or cause hell? I suppose it might. But that is fine to take flight. The cat is overly confusing some days with his rhyme maze. So now I will go plunder some grass with my whelmed little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    1. Everything is overpriced when broke
      Can agree with that, you blue bloke
      Not so much overworked at my sea
      As I'm "retired" you see lol
      But chasing around five 8 year olds gets the work in
      They have too much energy but I still try and win

      Delete
    2. Yeah that sucks a ton
      Like a shitty prize you just won
      Kids are cheap unless they're yours
      I'd send them to some other shores
      But never give up
      At your cup

      Delete
    3. Not mine
      So cheap all in a line
      Play and send them on their merry way
      Not giving up any pay

      Delete
  5. I can think of other things
    Where over and under work
    But perhaps I shouldn't elaborate
    Let's just say it's a perk

  8. The whelm of "early" at my door
    Early morn is not a bore
    There's Hank and Blue, today add Suza
    Primal day is not a looza
    I'm always up before first light
    To watch the race of mighty might
    It all depends where one calls home
    I live out where the buffalo roam
    The banter's light, it entertains
    Sing along with new refrains

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Up at first light
      That is a fright
      The cat will agree with thee
      Meowing his head off at me
      But I'll wait until 5th or 6th light
      Then call it a night

    I'm often immune to these things
    when I feel stressed or feel joy
    sometimes I will sing

  13. Overwhelmed, truly! I need something at my zoo, but I can't put my finger on it! Over used, over abused, over written, and above all - over it already! Now I just have to figure out what 'it' is?

  14. Over, under, both try to steal one's thunder. I am whelmed but not helmed. Over written like a cuddly kitten. Underused 'cuz I just snoozed. And it's almost the end of spring, better have that fling!

    1. Better get that fling in
      Before you are under in the department of sin

  15. I'd say I'm "worked" right now! I guess we don't feel the need to comment on something unless it's either being overdone or underdone!

    1. Worked is a fine way to be
      Yeah we don't say it if normal at our sea

  17. True that whelmed is never used
    Except at Rhyme Time where one's confused
    Or when R types "Great post"
    I'd say he's whelmed, much more than most.

    ReplyDelete

    1. lol yeah R is whelmed steady
      He has his great post at the ready

  18. At all levels of "whelm"
    I like you at the helm.

  19. Lots of 'whelm' for sure and they are all useful for something, I am sure. Underwhelmed might be good for a change.

  20. Is whelmed a real word?? I must google this...but you do pose a good question, cat. Why do people only mention something crazy and not the norm?? Pondering..

  23. Taxed is like whelmed in a way. It's perfectly legitimate to say "the job was taxing", but you don't hear that as often as overtaxing. But when it comes to the IRS we are all generally overtaxed. And what do they do with the money....wait, that's not what this post is about. I must be still under the weather :0)

    1. lol they stuck the money in their pocket
      After some stupid thing comes up on the political docket
      Taxed is one that can be used many a way too
      I hear that more than whelmed at my zoo

    2. The bastards rob us blind. And it's in every country too. Once upon a time I used to think "Wouldn't it be nice to live in Spain, or in Australia?" Not anymore. They're getting screwed same as the rest of us.

      But you know, we could go to Cuba and open a business now. Make money off American tourists :0)

      Delete
    3. Yep, they rob you blind everywhere
      Up here a person with cancer was said they needed to buy a 3000 pill at their lair
      For one damn pill with 3000 bucks
      Pffft rather go feed the ducks

      Cuba is supposedly far ahead in health care too
      Because they experiment more at their zoo

  37. The opposites that you discuss here remind me that we always go to opposites. We will either work too hard, or not at all. We will either be overconfident or underconfident. I wonder when I will get to a state of balance in all things as a person.
