The Gift Of Not Making Your Spirits Spot!

The cat is here to help you today. Although you may not like what I have to say. The cat is fine with that though. Get ready for what is about to show.

Gifts are grand,
Gifts are great.
Many across the land,
Will soon be a trait.

Wishing and wanting,
All want some.
Some so haunting,
While beating the drum.

Sorry to say,
Not really one bit,
That in your fray,
You won't get it.

A winning lottery ticket.
Ha! Fat chance.
Was that a cricket?
You broke out of your trance?

A Ferrari.
Yeah, and aliens will show.
You may get an Atari,
Just so you know.

A mansion in the hills.
Nah, not even in this market.
Sorry, no playboy thrills.
There you can't park it.

A book deal from the big boys.
No one works on Christmas day.
So you are better off with cheap toys,
As that won't be on display.

A trip around the world.
Whoops, the ticket got lost.
In the sand no toes will be curled,
Maybe a ferry ride at a cheap cost.

A windfall from a dead relative.
How morbid are you?
Do you have one in captive?
Yeah, a cheat rhyme came due.

Whoops, dreams are dead.
Not sorry about that.
No sugar plums in your head?
Gonna wish death on the cat?

Did the cat burst your bubble? Want to bury the cat in rubble? Hey, I just wanted to make sure your hopes weren't gotten up. But you may find a poop eating pup. What could be better than that? Right, a no poop eating cat. It is okay if you give the cat sass, it is enjoyed by my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  3. I got a guitar for Christmas one year, so I'm really hoping my wife doesn't try topping that this year. My dreams are for a scaled back Christmas.

    1. That was a nice gift indeed
      Scaled back is what many need

  4. I have a few dreams I'd like to fullfill.
    So I will bang my drum....I certainly will.

    Have a great week-end Pat.

  5. I think back to the gifts I got from students. Some really nice things but some unusual ones too. I was always serious about no gifts. Adults don't exchange gifts in my family which makes Christmas a lot less hectic and a lot more merry. That is our opinion. But frankly, stuff don't make it better.

    1. Nope, tons of stuff

  10. My dreams will never ever die, and this year, I'm getting what I've always wanted. That schmaltzy song about "All I want for Christmas is you" has always been my mantra. Finally, my hubby agrees. (Of course, the flu MAY have something to do with it...) :)

    1. haha I guess the flue has one perk
      As it allows your dream to work

  11. A winning ticket
    I've wanted badly.
    Doubt that I'll get it,
    I will say sadly.

    A worldwide cruise
    Is not in my wishes.
    It's probably a ruse
    To be food for the fishes.

    I am quite happy
    With the car that I own.
    It may not be snappy,
    But it still gets me home.

    But I'll keep being sunny
    And dreaming my dreams.
    Cuz I don't have much money
    For now so it seems.

    1. Hopefully that ticket
      Will come all aglow
      Maybe we should picket
      What? I don't know

      No need to be fish food
      Turned to poop in the sea
      That would be rude
      And not a good look for thee

      Dreams keep one going
      For you just never know
      One day there may be a showing
      Could have your own cruise ship in tow

  12. man, bring us down on a Friday

  21. Greatest gifts are not always the biggest and cost $$$$. Gotta scale down the sites.

  23. Winning Amazon Gift Cards fixes any holiday ill. My family are house gifters. If you don't live in the house or are close relatives (mostly even then) then no gift for you. Made us grow up knowing how important it is to stay around people whose company you enjoy. When there's no gifts flying around you learn quickly who you truly can or cannot stand.

    Merry Christmas Pat! And leave my bubble alone cat.

  25. Instead of store bought gifts- lets spend time together, smile, laugh and treat each other with kindness. We don't need more things- but we need more spreading of things that sooth our souls. :)

  26. Whether it is Xmas, Valentines' or someone's birthday, gift giving is getting a bit too extreme.

    Gifts should be voluntary. In addition to whether or not someone wishes to gift something, the timing too should be spontaneous.

    1. Yep, it has gone to a whole new extreme
      Valentines day pfffft that can go die in a stream
      Love should be all year
