Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Oh boy, this is one of my favorite days of the week. It is always fun to see what Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) have selected for an inspiration photo. I particularly enjoy the photos when I am able to add one of Kitties Blue. Today Lisbeth has joined in the fun.
My preferred type of poem is one that tells a story. Today’s does just that, but it’s a truly wacky one. I hope it gives you a giggle or two.
The Best Behaved Parishioner
Mom said not to bring my cat to church.
I snuck her in the car anyway.
Mom is trying not to scold me, but
I can see her biting her tongue.
I may be in for a spanking when
we get home. I don’t know why—Kitty’s
been well mannered. She didn’t sing
during the hymns or try to steal money
from the collection plate. She was much
better behaved than that crying baby
or the man behind me snoring. I
bet the minister compliments her when
we leave and invites her back again!

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats (by clicking on the poetry badge) for next week’s inspiration photo. And, as I always suggest, please read Angel Sammy’s poem when you visit. He sends it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is a wonderful and accomplishment poet.
Thursday also is the day we share our thankfuls. Some weeks are better than others. On a scale of one to ten, I’d give this one a solid eight.
Dad Tom and I are extremely grateful that Sawyer has not had a seizure since a week ago Saturday. He had been on an eight-day cycle and then a six-day cycle, so he is going in the right direction. We’ll be praying this is an extended hiatus for him.
I had injections in both my knees on Tuesday, which knocked my nearly constant pain down to zero. I am so grateful. That result hopefully will last for about three months.
I’m thankful we’ve had some lovely, unseasonably warm weather; even though, that silly groundhog saw his shadow last week.
Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge to join the hop.
That was a cute poem. I am sure most cats would behave better than kids in church. 🙂 XO
Those are really good thankfuls, we’re always purring for dear Sawyer. I hope your knees stay well. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
We too are warmer, and are under a huge rain shield now, but I’ll take it over the white stuff!
Purring for Sawyer…and for your knees!
Yay for no seizures and no knee pain!!! We love the poem. Mom wishes there would be a cat in Church sometimes. She has seen woofies but never a cat.

What a great poem. I was imagining it all happening as I read it, and how true about being better behaved than most babies! So glad to hear the time has lengthened between Sawyer’s seizures.
That is great news about Sawyer having a longer space of time between seizures!
Your poem is a winner, paws down! I would never have thought of that! The boys expression and the woman next to him…it all goes together and I love the expression on Lisbeth’s face…priceless.
Oh my – that is a truly fabulous poem! Lisbeth looks right at home in the pew. We just love it. Can’t wait to see what you do with NEXT week’s photo….teehee. Glad to hear the shots helped your Mama’s knees and that you’ve been having warm weather like we have. We all know it won’t last but while it’s here it’s FAB!
Oh, a wonderful poem for that little guy and what a great idea. And maybe mama has mentioned this, she has had SynVisc in a knee three different times over the last 6 years and the last bout of Synvic has lasted 3 years!!!! She also wears elastic knee supports for exercising, NO squats, ever. Hope this helps but your mama may have arthritis, not miniscus trouble.
Glad to hear the good news about your knees and that Sawyer is having more days without seizures.
Very glad to hear you had some unseasonably warm days. We, alas, are having a period of unseasonable cold.
Ha! Got a good laugh from your poem! Good news about the relief from knee pain, and Sawyer having fewer seizures.
I’m glad your knee pain has abated, hope it will last!
Its great that Sawyer is lengthening his seizure free periods…and its less worry for you, too, that way.
We’ve had some warmer days too, and most of the recent snow has melted.
Your poem is priceless! It should win a trophy!
