Watered Down Without A Frown!


Watered down?
That makes you frown?
I did say without.
What's the frown about?

Think I'd water it down?
Stop you from entering confusion town?
Pfffft don't worry about that.
I'm still a confusing cat.

I can amuse.
So I confuse,
As you peruse,
But that's not news.

Not insecure here?
That is clear.
But that you knew.
Damn, stop it, you.

Now I have to think.
Wait, I need a drink.
Ahh, I got something new.
New to you.

We interrupt this post to bring you breaking news.
Be sure to send away to give all clues.
Click Here for a peer.
Helping all far and near

You can send even if you're a mime.
Now back to our regularly scheduled rhyme.

Water and summer.
Sure not a bummer.
Beats the heat.
Cools the feet.

But is that all?
Do you stall?
Nothing but a feet cooler?
Should I get a ruler?

Oh, you went in.
Is it a win?
Wait, just the kiddie end?
Is shallow your friend?

Wading with the kiddie pee.
Wow, what a way to be.
No wonder insecurities are around.
Urine in the pool is found.

Now you're in the deep end.
You bucked the insecure trend.
And even if you sink.
You never know what's at the bottom of the drink. 

You could find new treasure at the bottom. Then get a hit come autumn. Or something else could come due. So go down in the water isn't always bad for you. Of course if you literally go down that may make you frown. Would suck to be dead. So don't take literally what I said. Look at those wise words that came to pass. Damn, I even surprised my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    Water in the deep end
    Than bored in the shallow
    With time to spend

  6. Sometimes you just have to take the plunge
    soak up some creativity in a sea sponge
    let insecurity go dive into the deep end
    perhaps, some new thoughts you can pen
    a story might come with a splash or two
    put your words out there for all to view

    But, cat this you already know
    that is why your bookshelf grows

    Or is "old" the new "new" unlike new books at your bay

  17. Nothing's more refreshing than a plunge into the deep end of the pool on a hot summer day, but a smart person knows it's never a good idea to test the depth of the water with both feet. :)

    1. You may end up with a stabbing pain
      Or down some fishing lane

  24. Making a come back, from being almost dead
    No,no really, just up in my head.
    Life is funny and sends us in circles and spins
    Sometimes we're up and out and others we're down with the ins

    I like the water, and think best when neck deep
    Even the shower helps me my sanity to keep
    So dive right in and give life a go
    You never know what new projects may show.

    1. Up than down
      Smile or frown
      Away we go
      To life's flow
      Can pile on the crap
      To any across the map
      So keep on a diving
      So the brain goes surviving

  27. That is why I love the sea
    Even if someone pees
    it is quickly washed away
    so I can still swim and play!
    Just wish it wasn't crowded with folks
    maybe you can scare them with your jokes?

      In your giant litter tray
