On Patrol With All Control!

The cat shakes his head. I think I'll do that even in my death bed. You humans are out to lunch. At least most in the bunch. But that you know. No need to tell me at your show. What? You did? Don't flip your lid.

Things will go wrong.
Things aren't in tune.
The world will ping pong.
It will be high noon.

You need me there.
I need to do it.
Get out of my hair.
I'll make everything a hit.

What was that?
That can't be.
It must have went splat.
It didn't have me.

1000 marriages took place.
That isn't true.
Me they should embrace,
Or it won't go through.

Work assignments were done.
That is as false as can be.
They will make the execs run.
They didn't consult me.

Cars everywhere were bought.
They never got the best price.
Screwed, the whole friggin lot.
Without me they roll loaded dice.

Homes were built.
What? In a tree?
I bet they all have a tilt.
You should have consulted me.

You graded work?
That is too bad.
You are just some clerk.
I'll regrade and make all mad.

You are raising kids?
That will end in disaster.
You can't even raise squids.
I can raise them better and faster.

Have you got it yet?
You can't live free.
Nothing can be perfectly set.
You have to consult me, me, me.

Are you a control freak? I hope not at your creek. Thinking everyone, everywhere needs you is rather pathetic at your zoo. Wow, dozens of babies were just born. Wow, people are picking ears of corn. Guess what each have in common from zoo to zoo? They got done and didn't need you. The cat is also still here passing gas. No need to control my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. A control freak I am not,
    That I'm glad to say.
    But I know someone who most certainly is,
    And by his actions I have had to pay.

    Happy week-end Pat.

    Yvonne.

  3. I imagine it's not easy raising squids.
    Reality is that everyone can be replaced.

    There're freaks who are bold
    Give some face
    Leave a space
    Or some may likely just fold

  9. I've known a control freak before
    played the game of do what I say

    to a friend this person did mistreat...

  10. On some things I like to be in control
    But then there are lots of things I slide by
    That is how I do it here
    But don't ask why.

  16. I am not a control freak
    but I am not meek.
    I do like some things a certain way
    most people are like that, I dare say.
    Now my hubby likes to be in control
    my mom as well, it makes my eyes roll
    to the back of my head as they need things this way and that.
    I just think they need some cat scat:)
