Living It Up With A Slight Hiccup!

The cat finds this one a tad funny. Humans really aren't right on the money. Maybe that is why so many are in debt. Probably not, long odds on that bet. Time to get living away at every bay.

I've lived here.
I've lived there.
Some cause fear.
Some cause care.

I've traveled here.
I've traveled there.
I drank my beer,
Spent money to spare.

One's not the same.
One's different than the other.
They have a different name,
Maybe like your brother.

They are related.
More than you think.
This post was fated.
May cause you to blink.

We're on the living.
We're not on death.
No need for forgiving,
Or even holding your breath.

Why is that?
Still not caught up?
Follow like a cat,
And not a low attention span pup.

No matter where you are.
No matter where you roam.
In plane, train or car.
Whether or not you're at home.

You are above ground.
Not ash blowing in the breeze.
Hear that little sound?
Are you still in brain freeze?

I'll make you unstuck.
I'm getting there soon.
No need to say fluck,
Or go all High Noon.

For even if there.
Guess what you're doing?
You're living life to spare,
And death you are shooing.

Maybe you should change it to asking where one has made a home? That is different that wherever you roam. Because if you say living or lived to anyone out there, whoops, everything counts with nothing to spare. You have lived every single place you have ever been to. Until you drop dead, it will remain so for you. Does the cat think too much at our sea? Has the wording ever been thought of by thee? Maybe humans just don't want to write a long list about all that came to pass. I'll go on living with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  4. Some think of childhood as the home
    Stay there, please, no need to roam
    But many want to leave the lodge
    And find a way to get outta Dodge

  5. Last year I noticed my dog not settling in to my new house after nearly her whole life at my mothers. Funny how animals get used to homes like we do.

  6. Living It Up With A Slight Hiccup!
    Location is important as a start-up
    Living here and there
    Living nearly everywhere
    One is happy all it matters, so what!

  11. I don't like to brag, but I've lived all over the world and haven't died ONCE in the past 33 years. That should be some kind of record.

  13. That old quote "No matter where you go, there you are" has been attributed to many people, from Confucius to Buckaroo Banzai. I'd be more likely to credit Confucius!

  15. My home in the country is the place for me.
    I'm happy with the deer, the rabbits, and other wildlife I see.
    The snakes and rats I can do without.
    And other creatures that scurry about.
    My cats like to roam.
    So we call it home.

  20. I've lived in quite a few places, but Midwest has almost always been called home. Hopefully within the next 10 years we can relocate and I can call myself a southern girl once again.
