A Make It Work Kinda Perk?

The cat was sleeping here at home and Pat went out to roam. Actually he went out to babysit but I guess that counts as roaming a bit. Glad we didn't have to go. Hair pullers are scary don't you know.

Fine and dandy,
Fill em full of candy.
That's the cat's way.
But then they'll play.

Whoops, it broke.
Poke, poke, poke.
Make it work.
Don't be a jerk.

Hmm the battery is dead.
Can fix it he said.
New batteries came due.
Fixed without glue.

Whoops, that broke.
Come back here bloke.
Fix this site.
I want to play minecraft all night.

Pulled the plug.
No more blocks to be dug.
Stuck it back in.
Poof, instant win.

Whoops, that broke.
I'll go get a coke.
While you can fix it.
I'll be back in a bit.

Hit the buttons right.
The TV took flight.
Easy as can be.
Now a show you can see.

All fine and dandy,
Shove in more candy.
Hey, it works.
At least for candy clerks.

Whoops, that broke.
Poke, poke, poke.
Fix this internet site.
It no longer sees the light.

Whoops, that stays broken.
There is no magic token.
The site is down.
On comes the frown.

Geez, things get broken a lot that aren't really broken. Maybe a new word needs to be spoken? Ever have to fix what isn't broken at your sea? Hey, at least it is as easy as can be. But when the real broken comes may get a few flapping gums. I'll just stay home with Cass and actually make sure I break things with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    Broken but don't go berserk
    It's make believe
    Don't be deceived
    Perhaps some tricks of a jerk

  6. Kids break toys left and right
    Then they even begin to fight
    Just give em the box without the toy
    They'll play for hours with kid-style joy

  7. What is a kid to do
    When the internet goes down, sue?

  8. Back in the day it was mechanical pieces
    Now it's electronics that eases
    Our daily life or maybe not
    Call a specialist to untie that knot
    And on hold all day you rot


    What is the candy of choice? I like Milky Way

    1. Milky way away
      There at your bay
      Eases the electronic use
      And maybe adds to the caboose

  11. Baby sit?? That surprised me, although I think that you would be a fun babysitter! Recalcitrant computers make me crazy. But it's usually me who is the problem! LOL Have a good one, Pat! Wherever you're at!

  12. Was it the cat that broke it?/Maybe it forgot and kept it lit?/Batteries run out you know/Leaving lights on is a big no-no.

  17. Ha ha...fixing things that aren't broken. Sometimes computers seem like there is an issue, but then they are fixed just by rebooting....so nothing was broken at all!

  18. I broke the caramel on the apples we were making. The oven melted it nicely though, so that wasn't really broken either. Now we have delicious caramel apples to eat.

    and they wished it was alive. haha.
