Burn A Bridge Just A Smidge?

The cat hears it time and time again. I seem to hear a lot at my den. Maybe I just notice it. Can you notice and hear at the same time each fit? Maybe not if some spit when they talk. That can sure make you balk.

Don't burn bridges.
They may ignite ridges.
Bridges may fall down.
Like the one in London town.

Isn't that a city?
It burnt down, pity.
Wait, it's still there?
I've been lied to at my lair.

Can bridges even burn?
Maybe ones from which they don't earn.
They being the greedy sobs.
They do whatever they please.

Like covered ones made of wood.
I think that is understood.
But metal ones burn?
Wow, some heat you must churn.

Then again a rope is cheaper.
You could be a Tarzan creeper.
Dress in a loin cloth and swing.
A rope will get you across the thing.

Or just hop a boat.
One with or without a goat.
Get a motor so you don't have to row.
But then if the later your muscles may grow.

Or learn how to swim.
The sea/river/whatever may be grim,
But you'll get there with no time to spare.
You also may shrink down there.

Hey, it had to be said.
I know it popped into your head.
Just blame the pool.
That seems to be cool.

Could learn to fly.
Like in a plane in the sky.
Seems wasteful to do though.
Plus you'd need lots of dough.

Do bridges burn?
That had to return.
Maybe those imaginary ones,
They can burn by the tons.

All from a burning bridge. I guess they can burn a smidge. But metal on fire? Yeah, the burning would expire. Burn any bridges at your sea? Did the fire bug-ness give you glee? Wait, fake bridges you say? Burn any of those at your bay? Can be all fire bug with that pass. Although that is probably safer for all and my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    1. Some bridges can be burned
      swimming will be a lesson learned

      Before you light that match
      Make sure you have a safety catch

    2. Light the sucker and watch it blow
      Then a swimming you can go
      Although if you can't swim
      Things may get grim

  3. Great verse Pat, I've been trying to burn bridges with two of my off spings for a number of years.
    Did you know that Lond Bridge was eventually transported to the US some years ago?

  5. Burn A Bridge Just A Smidge?

    No going back
    Face the flacks
    Perhaps hope may get it over with

  7. Where you go at every turn
    Bridges there for you to burn
    Decide what side you wish to be
    Before you strike the match with glee

  12. Who hasn't burned a few bridges in previous years
    I'm certain there have been a few tears.
    I'd rather be like my mom when she was young.
    She set the dynamite as she clung
    To the bridge to stop the Krauts
    Amazing eh? ...no rhyme at the end

    back when the saying took hold
    before we were old. haha.

  23. There's a quote that goes something like "Sometimes you just have to light that match and burn that bridge." I've burnt a few in my day and I'd light those matches all over again if I could.
