Let's Talk And Walk!

The cat has heard it a time or two. It is far different than the "we need to talk" at any zoo. If that happens run away. It probably won't end in a very nice day. Then again, you could be told you just won the lotto at your den. Yeah right. In your dreams at night.

Here come the squawk.
Maybe even a gawk.
Walking the walk,
The dreaded let's talk.

Talk about what?
I don't know.
And then comes the rut,
As nothing shall flow.

Let's talk but not.
That seems to be it.
For the tongue may rot,
Or some other shit.

I guess it can't wag.
That has to suck.
Must be a drag,
Passing the buck.

I said let's talk.
So let's do that.
I gave my squawk,
Now you add to the stat.

I said let's talk.
That was my addition.
Don't stand and gawk,
Have some ambition.

Let's talk about this.
Let's talk about that.
Maybe that and this.
Or something like that.

But let's talk.
So talk to me.
I said let's talk.
Let your words fly free.

Don't look at me.
Let your words flow.
I need to hear thee.
This isn't a mime show.

So let's talk.
Come and talk to me.
Let's talk and walk.
Talking is free.

Pffft just because they say let's talk they expect you to squawk. They really have nothing to say and who are they anyway? Beats the dreaded them. They breathe phlegm. Trust the cat on that. Get the let's talk where you are at? Is anything said by the let's talker? Do you stare at them like a stalker? Hey, can always pass some gas. That chases them away from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. Let's Talk And Walk!
    And sure not to balk
    Let it just fly

  3. I hear those words from my wife, my entire body sags to my toes. She might as well say 'I'm about to tell you something you don't want to hear.'

  4. Its good to talk and walk, to talk it excerises your tongue and mind. To walk it excercises your legs.
    Great verse Pat.

  5. I get nervous when people say "we need to talk". Walk and talk is better so at least you can walk away. Lol

  6. I like to walk and talk because it makes exercise so much more fun. "We need to talk" never seems to end well.

  7. I like the one let's talk soon
    would then be high noon
    Or maybe under a blue moon
    would it make my head swoon
    or would you call me a loon
    dreaming of a blue lagoon

    Talking soon never comes to be
    I'd enjoy a good walk though by the sea

    1. Soon is relative though

    3. Nah, needs to be on a boat
      Then we can sink all remakes so they can't float

  10. I'm laughing because the header that came up has a wonderfully incongruous topiary elephant with its tail stuck straight up and mimicking the palm trees on the beach. If you don't really look, you might miss cute little Cassie in the shade. That's how your writing is ~ you throw in an absurdity that stops us and shakes up our thinking. I love it!

    Okay, now that I've enjoyed the header, I'm going to go read your post.

    1. LOL: I don't always say the words "Let's talk" as a warning, because if something is bothering me, my words are already flying free! It's cool-headed, rational Terry who says, "Let's talk," and that is rarely a good thing!"

      Delete
    2. lol a turn around at your sea
      Let's talk gets used on thee

      That header is a fun one
      Never know what words shall be spun

  13. I liked Alex's comment. That's how my husband reacts or if I say, "I was thinking....". that's dangerous. Or frankly - we shouldn't have to talk, you SHOULD know what's wrong....oh you cats can't win on that one.

  16. My cats talk to me all the time and the nice thing is that I don't have to answer them. Let's talk is a scary and dangerous thing to say.

  18. If walking and talking doesn't work out, we can always run... away...

  19. Oh my gosh, at least 'we have to talk' is well thought out. It's worse when you get schmoozed and then told while you're someplace nice,'there's really something I've been meaning to tell you,' lolol!

  23. We live in the country so when Tiger and I take a walk,
    It's just the two of us, and I'm the only one to talk.
    Tiger trots along beside me, sniffing the air,
    I don't know what he smells, but something is there.
    He ignores what I say,
    And that's okay.
    Who wants to talk, anyway?
