Thoroughly Poetic Pirate Thursday

Arrgh! Today is the one day each year when we all get together to meow like pirates. It’s pretty silly but also fun.

Today also is poetry day, and Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats) gave us this appropriate photo as our inspiration.



Pirates for Just One Day

This pirate looks really scary,
Not to mention extremely hairy.
He doesn’t appear to be gregarious.
We suspect he’s up to things nefarious.
Pillaging and plundering are his agenda.
His pirate actions are totally horrendous.
Today we kitties have fun at playing pirates,
But this fellow here is totally serious.
We’re sailing our ship in a different direction,
So we won’t become his latest obsession.
Of course, if he is looking for treasure,
A search of our ship will be a futile venture.
We carry only Temptations aboard this vessel.
If he wants those, each of us he’ll need to wrestle.
But should he threaten us with his broadsword,
We suspect we will need to jump overboard.
That’s why we are sailing away as fast as we can,
Because getting our furs wet is not in our plan.
We may be pirates on the high seas for a day,
But we’re also kitties, so dry we plan to stay.

We also wrote a pretty good pirate poem in February, 2018. If you’d like to read it, click here.

If you are not a participant in the Thursday Poetry challenge, you should give it a try. Each Thursday Angel Sammy and Teddy post an inspiration photo for the following week’s poem. So, to participant next week, visit their blog today. While there, please read the poem Angel Sammy will have transmitted to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. And don’t forget to check out the Comments section for links to poems by your fellow bloggers. Click on the badge at the left to go to Two Spoiled Cats now.

Before moving on to the Thankful Thursday blog hop, we’d like to ask you to check out the Tabby Cat Club today. Captain Stinky One-Eyed Biggs (aka Sawyer) and Captain Periwinkle Puffy Pants (aka Noelle from Friends Furever) are sharing a post and hosting a sail around Pirate Bay on the S.S. Tabby. They are super cute, and we know you’ll enjoy their post.

Thankful Thursday

Our thankful for the week comes from yesterday’s birthday celebrants, Misty May and Mauricio. They decided to wear their pirate garb to deliver their thankful.



We’d like to thank everyone who celebrated our birthday with us yesterday by attending our party and leaving so many well wishes in the comments. Life is better with friends, and we are blessed to have so many.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May and Mau

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post for what you are thankful on your blog and then click on the badge below to be transported to the hop.
