The Tale Of The Scale!

You humans sure like your numbers. Even count your cucumbers. Hey, I'm sure some do. The only thing the cat counts is toys at our zoo. Pat likes to count dough, but you need that though.

No need to wait.
Not a weight trait.
So ignore that scale.
Don't hit the trail.

Goes to 10.
Women and men.
No more, no less.
An 11 you confess?

Pffft get out of here.
Don't show that tear.
It stops at ten.
Go bug a hen.

You got it now?
You caught on, wow!
Let's get to it.
Have to gauge your fit.

How is your fit?
Taking crap or shit?
On a scale of one to ten.
You can use a pen.

How is your brain?
Does this cause pain?
On a scale of one to ten.
Sorry, we don't take Yen.

How is you attention?
Is it in detention?
On a scale of one to ten.
Can you survive under a dumpster like Glenn?

It is a four?
Why not a three tour?
What's the difference between?
What? A six you mean?

A one means none.
A ten means a ton.
A nine a smidgen less?
This could be a mess.

Did you like this post?
Rate it at my coast?
On a scale of one to ten.
Now I'll go sleep in the den.

Don't you love those that blurt out 3? I mean really a 3 can come to be? Why not 3 and a tiny bit? Sure can be a weird 1 to 10 fit. What if each have a different scale? Some do and some don't wail. Geez, I'll have to find out from the singing bass. Of course I'm a 10 little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  3. Numbers can only hurt you if you believe in them I say. Cheerio this morning from numeral three.

  4. The scale can be subjective
    I could say I was #10 in pain
    with just a minor headache
    but a person with a broken bone could say the same

    1. Yep, subjective as can be

  5. The Tale Of The Scale!
    Getting #1 will make you wail
    It's from 1 to ten
    Quite a long range
    With enough space not to fail

  6. I've always been partial to 13
    But 10 can be super keen
    And being #1 would be unforeseen

  8. Of course you are a 10, Cat!
    But at what where you're at?
    10 decimeters under a few days back.

    That's as far as I can go with rhymes this morning ~ drinking my first cup of coffee and waking up ~ let's see if I can get to 10 days in a row without falling behind on your posts. Terry wants to know, if you've dug out from under that snow. Have a good one!

    1. 10 and more
      We were at our shore
      Not 10 days back
      May cause some flack
      As you travel here and there
      Visiting many a lair
      Dug out with mountains to the roof
      Wishing it would all go, poof

  11. 10/10 would comment again. You and your posts are a lot of things, but definitely not a zero. I'd say you're #1, but on a scale of 1-10, that can get confusing.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, that gets math involved and philosophy too
      Is zero really a number or just a thing there in your view

  12. Doctor is always asking from a scale of 1 to 10 how bad is the pain. I dunno doc..I broke my arm, I'd say an 11. lol

  14. I'd actually like to drop 10 on the scale. Maybe that would make me a 10 in real life then? Not even close, but hey, a girl can dream...

  22. An 8! This was quite a poem. Since I recently familiarized myself with a special pain index chart (to better rate my early onset arthritis), this poem takes on a whole other meaning of one to ten. Nice work Patt.

    1. Never knew there was such a chart
      Hopefully the pain stays at the start
