Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Today we’re going to give you two poems. The first is for Sammy’s (onespoiledcat) Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. The second was written Tuesday in the comments on Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser post. You may have seen it already on Sammy’s blog as he shared it yesterday. If you missed it, it’s at the end after our “U” prompt poem.
The inspiration for this week’s poem are the photos below.
MAU CRIES, “UNFAIR”
If you ask our mom, she’ll claim,
“I’m really not to blame:
I never dress the cats,
Not even in funny little hats.”
But we can tell you she’s lying
Which is why Mauricio is crying,
“UNFAIR, you mean old woman.
Can’t you see I’m not a human?
Clothes I should not be wearing
Even for this Halloween scaring.”
The woman says, “Other Cat Scouts do it,”
So you should want to pursue it
This year Mau dressed as Jimmy Buffett,
And you can trust he did not love it.
He squirmed and growled and gyrated,
While Mom he thoroughly berated,
Until a couple of photos were snapped,
And he could escape from her lap.
Wearing only his tuxie suit of furs,
Mau will make certain she gets “hers.”
Mom better keep an eye on her shoes,
Or When Mau horks in them, she’ll be singing the blues.

You can’t see it in the photo, but Mom is wearing her silly cat ears, a cat t-shirt and a big grin. Mau hopes that spider weaving his web eats that smile right off her face.
Though much embarrassed by it, Mau invites you to witness our mom’s lying ways by clicking here.
So this next poem, we wrote in response to another tough Tuesday Teaser at Sammy’s. We’ve been first to comment a couple of times, been able to stump everyone when we were the guest Teaser, and even be the only ones to identify the location on a couple of occasions. But mostly we are the recipients of the infamous Greenies given to those who don’t have a clue. That was the case once again on Tuesday, prompting this poem.
As the correct answer is above,
We are just going to shove,
Off and do some chores,
As we can’t be tortured any more!
We know Sam’s not a meanie;
Though, Kitties Blue get another Greenie.
But we only come for Suzie’s cheers
To see whose name she smears!
Today she was mostly a good kitty,
While still being funny and rather witty.
So we’ll return again next week
To give the new Teaser a peek.
We have won a couple of times,
But if we don’t, we can still rhyme.
We’re getting ready for our Thursday verse.
Where it doesn’t matter who is FIRST!
With a U for a prompt it won’t be easy,
So we better go now and get busy.
See you tomorrow for the big reveal
We know the winner is going to squeal!

Mau, I think you made a purrfect Jimmy Buffett! And, we have to ask again, will you be putting out a book of poetry?!? You have quite the talent for writing poems, and we’d love to read them as often as we can. Purrs!
Your poems are always great. Well done, my creative friend. And you two look marvelous! *wink*
We love both of them. Mau, your mom is super creative and we love her talent. We often get a great laugh from her.
Shoko and Kali
Those are both very good poems.
Mau, what a great poem. Your mom looks like fun was being had in that picture!

To Mau from Allie:
Dearest husband, I think you look fabulous in your costume. You are so handsome and can pull off ANY look! You’re such a good sport and I love you!!! Your poems were super!
We love your poems! We don’t like dressing up either and usually fight tooth and claw when the mom puts clothes or hats on us.
Well even though Mau hated every second of wearing the shirt – I think he looked rather cute in it! His face SAYS IT ALL! Love the poems – BOTH of them! Thanks for playing along with us on Poetry Day…..it’s SO MUCH FUN reading everybody’s entries. I’m looking forward to starting the alphabet again when we’ve reached our first “Z”! Happy Thursday……….
The poems are great! Poor Mau. I don’t like dressing up either!
I love both poems! Poor Mau – maybe he doesn’t like Jimmy Buffett?
MOL! Mau, you looked purrty good in that get-up, we must say…Did you use some scratching tools??
