A Little Forth And Back Insecure Attack!


Summer's at an end,
So they say.
Who are the they they send?
Beats me, okay.

Still warm though.
Then it may not be.
I wrote this in snow.
The verse wanted to fly free.

What is my point?
Don't sit and mutter.
I'll get there at my joint.
Even if I have to go gutter.

Summer is gone.
Fall is here.
Almost with its con.
Still hot I fear.

Whoops, been there.
Whoops, done that.
Did I get a stare?
Yep, I'm a dingcat.

Nope, not dingbat.
They have wings.
I'm a cat.
Among other things. 

Back on task.
Bring forth I do.
What you may ask?
Why, something that's true.

Summer will return.
You'll see it once more.
May even get a sun burn,
 Being a real clown at your shore.

Unless there is an ice age.
Unless you have a heart attack.
My, aren't I cheery on my page.
Hey, cheer I never lack.

So get the forth and back?
Or maybe back and forth?
Pffft to each insecurity attack,
Ship it very very far north.

Solved it all for you. Pack you insecurity up at your zoo. Mail it to the North Pole. Santa will take it for a stroll. Some things you can control and some things will just continue to roll. So pffft to the poor pitiful me. The sun again you will see. Summer shall come back once more and you too shall bounce back at your shore. Just don't bounce on my grass as you may fall on my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  11. Another hot day coming my way,
    According to the weatherman if he's to be believed,
    But that's the way it is out here in L.A.
    And the daily forecasts here rarely deceive.

    Few insecurities for the L.A. meteorologist--
    Just predict "sunny and warm" and he's probably right.
    Like many celebs he's probably a Scientologist.
    He knows there'll be day and then there'll be night.

    What the meteorologist says about weather is probably true.
    What the Scientologist says to me seems strange and queer.
    I get it if the forecast is "sunny with skies of blue",
    But what if the meteorologist Scientologist says the day will be "clear"?

    1. haha look at you go
      With the weather flow
      A turn of events
      That sure presents

      The conundrum is had
      Could drive one mad
      Or maybe it already did
      As the meteorologist Scientologist worships some alien squid

      The notion is clear
      Just lend an ear
      Stick money in their pot
      It's still gonna be hot

  30. It was 91 degrees here yesterday, which is my way of saying that I'm going to hold onto summer as long as I can. As long as it's summer in my mind, it's summer outside. Don't worry, we live in a world where a grown woman can say she identifies as a house cat, so just feed my delusion.

    "Yep, cold summer this year. It's been snowing a bit, but it's still a nice, December summer."

  32. Fall is my favorite season.
    I like it for many reasons.
    The temperature starts dropping.
    A pleasant time to go shopping.
    The Monarchs will soon fill the sky,
    As they, on silent wings, fly by.
    Their journey will end in Mexico.
    Where they won't freeze from the snow.
    I like many other things about fall.
    It would take too long to tell them all.
