Throughly Poetic Thursday
Cooper Murphy is our poet this week for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry day at Two Spoiled Cats. Not only did he write the poem, but he also took the liberty of slightly altering the inspiration photo. As Cooper Murphy and Teddy are BFFs, he’s hoping he won’t get into too much trouble for doing this.
This is our altered photo followed by Cooper’s poem.
ON THE PROWL
We’ve strolled this market,
and our paws are wet.
Why we came here, we now regret.
We’ve searched high & low for silvervine
Or possibly some tasty, fresh nip.
Whatever, it wasn’t worth the trip.
Tomatoes, potatoes, and spinach,
Zucchini, turnips and chard…
All this searching is too hard.
Plodding along with no umbrella,
We’ve meowed with every vendor,
But none had nip or vine to tender.
I was given a carrot, but I’m not a bunny.
A nice lady offered Sawyer some escarole,
But that sounds like something for a mole.
All this walking has made us quite hungry,
And we believe it must be time for dinner
As we feel ourselves getting physically thinner.
With each step our empty tummies
Are loudly rumbling and growling,
So for today we’ll end our prowling.
If the sun is shining bright tomorrow,
We may come back for more searching,
As of nip and vine we are most deserving!

This is Brian’s weekly blog hop. It gives us the opportunity to share for what we are thankful. Neither Kitties Blue nor I have anything special for which to give thanks. We always are grateful for warmer weather, good friends, good health and a happy family. So that is our share for today.
