The Could Is Misunderstood!

So the cat heard another saying for the thousandth time the other day. Humans really like to use them with what they say. It is another reverse of what is true. Such lies you humans say at your zoo.

What was that?
Say it clear.
Come on, dingbat.
Perk up my ear.

Oh, that was it?
Why bother telling me?
Who needs that shit.
Now I set you free.

Why is that?
Because I'm through.
We chewed the fat,
Time for something new.

Simply put though,
In case I wasn't clear,
Listen to my flow,
Stick out your ear.

I couldn't care less.
No caring at all.
Who needs that mess?
Read the writing on the wall.

I couldn't care less,
About what you said.
I won't confess,
Even on my death bed.

I couldn't care less,
If you think I cared.
The off switch I press,
You have been spared.

I couldn't care less,
I'll say it one more time.
Just in case you didn't guess,
That I care more about a mime.

Couldn't = could?
Say it isn't so.
It's not misunderstood.
Who cares if I wanted to know.

I couldn't care less,
If couldn't = could.
This isn't some game of chess,
Knock on wood.

The cat even threw in another saying at the end. Superstitious crap may have been fed. But could I care less? Nope, I confess. Does that mean I care? I never asked you at my lair. Could you care less? Is this one big mind mess? It is okay to give sass to my caring, yeah right, little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. That's why you need to be careful what you ask people, because you might get way more than you wanted.

    Or I'll have a cow

  10. That is one big bunch of sayings. And it really does depend on how they come out of one's mouth as to their real meaning. You did find a bunch of them. Love Brian's comment about 'chew the fat'.

  14. I thought it was, "I couldn't care more".

  15. LOL! What messes me up is when people say, "I could care less." I'm so used to "I couldn't care less," that it hurts my head when people use "could" instead. so set in some ways I am! Have a good one!

  20. Quite a statement you have made here.
    Perhaps when it comes to could and couldn't we should "steer clear."

  25. Could care less grates my nerves. Unless they actually do are a little. Then I guess it's okay for them to say it that way.
