The Great And Powerful Schmuck Goes Cluck!

The cat has spotted hair. Look at it all shiny at my lair. Doesn't it impress you? It is shiny and catches the eye of you. Now bow down without bowing. Follow my every meowing.

I'm on top.
Top of the crop.
All because of you.
But shhh forget that clue.

Top of the heap.
No need to leap.
You helped me up.
Dumb as a pup.

I can call names.
Brings even more claims.
Gets me even higher.
I shall never expire.

All powerful me.
Followed by thee.
Like a chicken going cluck.
You give me every last buck.

All because of what?
I'm top at my hut?
For doing not much.
Hey, reach out and touch.

Cling to me like masses.
All with heads up asses.
I even made fun.
But I offended no one.

You follow and laugh.
Even tattoo your calf.
All in the name of me.
Really, I'm no better than thee.

But look at you go.
I put on a two minute show.
You cling to every word.
Then I flip you the bird.

No matter what.
Come knowledge or smut.
You believe in me.
Sad sad fate for thee.

But I'm on top.
My power can't stop.
You gave it to me,
And continue to do so for free.

Ever think of that? How you follow or look up to some dumb scat. When really the only reason they have any say or sway is because of you at your bay. Take that away and they are a dumb schmuck that goes cluck. But instead people flock to the oh so powerful in mass. Pffft they can suck on the gas of my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. I'm not one to follow
    It's too much to swallow
    In crap I don't wallow
    Or hear words so hollow

  6. The powwrful schmuck goes cluck
    By getting all others out of luck
    They need to follow
    None ever too slow
    Even insistence to pass the buck

  9. Heroes come and go. In the passage of time, those heroes become ones whose names can't be remembered.Cats (and dogs) hold a deeper connection to those who love them. Their names will be remembered for decades.

  14. I'm old enough to remember when we used to actually have role models. Sports stars, presidents, astronauts... We used to look up to people in many walks of life. Not nearly so much now.

  15. hmm..When I hear schmuck I think of this scene from the Holiday..

    Iris: An ex-boyfriend who just got engaged and forgot to tell me.

    Arthur Abbott: So, he's a schmuck.

    Iris: As a matter of fact, he is... a huge schmuck. How did you know?

    Arthur Abbott: He let you go. This is not a hard one to figure out. Iris, in the movies we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason you are behaving like the best friend.

    Iris: You're so right. You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god's sake! Arthur, I've been going to a therapist for three years, and she's never explained anything to me that well. That was brilliant. Brutal, but brilliant.

    1. The Holiday was a terrific film. Lots of fun. Everyone played their roles well, but Eli Wallach's character and his performance were delightful!

      Delete
    2. I just love this movie, I watched it while I was sick with a box of tissue. Yes, Eli's performance was charming. This movie just clicked with me.

    3. Look at you go
      With the quoting show
      Never seen that one at my sea
      Will have to give it a watch when time is free
      Schmuck gets play
      At many a bay

  16. Believe what you believe and leave it at that
    It's Ok if you believe in a gray pinstripe cat
    Or believe in a tree with shiny green leaves
    Or believe in a butler with the name of Jeeves

    1. What if they aren't there?
      Would the rubber room people need to be made aware?

  17. Hero worship is so stupid. We are all pretty much the same. I don't see how one person can be so much better than the masses that everyone has to ooh and ahh whenever their faces pop up.
