A Searching We Go High Or Just Low!

The cat doesn't need to do this as I just give a hiss. That usually seems to work. It can so be a perk. The life of a cat. Who's to blame for that?

That wasn't me.
It costs a fee?
It really wasn't me.
Go bug that tree.

It was that squirrel.
See how he did a whirl?
The squirrel in the tree.
I swear that it wasn't me.

It was that bird.
He didn't say a word.
He flew from the squirrel.
See how those wings curl?

It was not me.
I'm truly telling thee.
It was that dog.
The one that ate the bird's brown log.

No! Look at that.
The dog chased the cat.
It was that cat.
He chewed no fat.

See? He's up on a ledge.
He's as whelmed as that hedge.
His human just took him in.
It was her that committed this sin.

Don't look at me.
It was not me, can't you see?
It was her child.
She let him run wild.

Wait. It was his friend.
Now no need to amend.
For his friend is the Girl Scout Leader's daughter.
Oh look, she's likes Harry Potter.

It was the author of that.
She caused this scat.
It was all her doing.
I think they call it kangarooing.

I swear that's the truth.
I'm the greatest sleuth.
It was never that tree.
Just like it wasn't me.

Do you like to shift blame? Do you get that lame? Like nonsense land type blame? Blaming someone who doesn't even know your name? The cat would roll his eyes if so. We'll stick to avoiding the blame game at our show. But if you want blame to come to pass then you can blame today's post on my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. It's easy to shoft the blame,
    When it's your fault all the same.
    I suppose we;ve all done that.
    Like this wonderful cat.

  10. The blame game, where does fault really land, two steps forward or 3 backwards. Depends on perspective.

    Have a great Friday!

  11. My country's current president always blames someone else for his mistakes, and always takes credit for any good thing that happens. There were no deaths from airline crashes during 2017, and he took credit for that!

  17. When there are multiple kids and multiple pets in the house, parents rarely know for sure whodunit. Our kids were always either shifting the blame or taking the blame for somebody else, and none of our pets have ever had a conscience.

  21. My Dad often said, "Don't look at me." Usually when something was missing or misplaced. I haven't thought of that in years. I could hear his voice perfectly. Thanks for the unexpected memory, Pat!
