Now And Then At My Den!

Are you ready for the now? I don't think so somehow. So are you ready for the then? It may be too much for your pen. Maybe the "and" is it? Could we find out after a bit?

Now and then,
Said at my den.
Said by you,
More than a time or two.

At least by most,
From coast to coast.
Stole Blue's line.
Sure that will be fine.

Is it now and then?
Like a chicken and hen?
Or then and now?
Don't have a cow.

When is it said?
When in comes the dread?
When in comes the happy?
Both get people flappy.

It happens every now and then.
So like an attack by Ben?
We can't have that.
Rats can't come after the cat.

When did it happen then?
Can you answer at your den?
Did it really happen now?
I'm not sure somehow.

Now is now until it isn't now.
Did that just wow?
Now is then when now is said.
Am I hurting your head?

So there is no now just then.
Or maybe now lasts for minutes by the ten.
Beats the heck out of me.
But can it be now and then at one's sea?

I stubbed my toe yesterday.
Oh it happens every now and then at my bay.
It didn't happen now just then.
See? Only then should come off your pen.

So it's then and then when done.
Doesn't sound as fun.
Then and that could come due?
Or that and then to bug Betsy's zoo.

Get my now and then? Then you may be confused at your den. Maybe a then and now can raise an eyebrow. I could do a backwards reboot at my sea. Yeah, no stooping so low for me. They don't happen now and then with any pass. But I guess I'm a rhyming now and then little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  6. You can take the most common phrase that people say, probably automatically, and twist it so one's brain hurts! That's a rare talent, Pat!

  9. "Now and then" sounds better
    Than "then and then" by this jet-setter
    But truly doesn't make sense
    Just makes the speaker sound dense

  21. We can try, we can dare,
    just to practice for while,
    make the now and then simultaneously here...
    what you focus on...that you get
    this is simple as hat or cat in the hat
    or what you see that you have in your hive
    when you strive with high five and revive...
    anyway, fun rhyme time today at your bay!

  23. Now and Then was a movie that I used to love. Or was it Then and Now? I'm getting too old and the ticker doesn't work now as well as it did back then.

  24. I think I like to say then and now
    And, " How now, brown cow?"
    But it sounds better to say now and then.
    My head hurts now at my den
    Time to say good night
    My brain, right now, is non too bright.
