A Human Troop Through A Hoop!

The cat has seen you humans train dogs to jump through hoops. Even some cats have done the hoop loops. Do you know why you do this? It is not to entertain or cause bliss.

Look at you,
The human crew.
Able to train,
Think it's a gain.

But nope, not it.
Not one bit.
Just your ego at play,
At the end of the day.

Thinking you are more.
No hoops at your shore.
You don't jump at all.
Nope, not at your hall.

Want that promotion?
Don't want a demotion?
Guess what you do?
Jump through hoops on cue.

Want that win?
Do all others in.
Yes you train,
Hoop jumping each lane.

Need a loan?
Hold the phone.
You jump through a ton.
Isn't paperwork fun?

Hold the phone?
To hear a dial tone?
Why would you hold a phone?
That bored when alone?

Where was I?
I knew on the fly.
But I was asking you?
Hop the the hoop on cue.

One foot, two foot,
Can't say put put.
Put put or putt putt?
Go ask a mutt.

Look at you.
A hoop jumper too.
Proof in the hoop.
A hoop jumping troop.

Did you hop on through? Still think you don't jump through hoops at your zoo? At least a mutt only does a real one. You humans jump through hoops you can't even see under any sun. That is right, there is more than one sun in sight. Hmmm maybe that was just a ball of my gas? It sure beats my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. A Human Troop Through A Hoop!
    Surreptitious glide of a sloop
    Gave a fine run
    And made a jump
    A regal stature where he stood

  7. My cats have me way more trained than I have them so none of this surprises me whatsoever. I would say more, but I now am required to give my cat more food and pet her because she is telling me to do so.

  8. I'm fascinated by who's holding the hoops and if it's a cat, I don't care. They're royalty and always in charge.

  30. I hate it when companies make you jump through hoops to get deals or rebates. Sometimes it just isn't worth it for all the work they make you do to save a few bucks.

  31. We all jump through hoops
    I feel, at times, I am on the team called Fruit loops.
    If we wish to get what we need, want or deserve
    we will jump through hoops that are on fire, if we have the nerve.
    Such is the way in life
    I refuse to let it cause me much strife.
