Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today is my first attempt at a poem. I was the only one of the Kitties Blue who could write it as the poem is about something at which I excel: zoomies. Luckily, this week’s prompt letter just happens to be “Z.” So without any additional meowing, here it is.



Zoomies are a thing I like to do,
Sometimes just because or after a poo!
If you get in my way, you best watch out,
I’ll hurdle you in a minute without even a shout.
I love to zoom from room to room.
If you hear my purr, I’m going vroom,vroom,vroom.
Those two boys may have that hooligan wagon,
But I’m the one doing all the braggin’.
I zoom right by them in a great big rush,
Leaving their sorry butts draggin’ in my dust.
If you’re a zoomer or just a wannabe,
Let me know ‘cause there is a key.
It’s definitely something you’ll want to know
About building up speed while on the go.
If you think to be a good zoomer, you’ll require some nip,
I promise you can zoom without taking a trip.
I cannot let the cat out of the bag here.
It’s a secret from my fursibs I hold dear.
Calista and Cooper have each tried to zoom;
Without my knowledge they won’t beat me anytime soon.
But I’ll give it to you in a super secret note,
So you too can earn the privilege to gloat.
When you fly by your fursibs with a flick of your tail,
They’ll be calling an Uber or raising a sail.
Now if you’ll please excuse me, I’ve got to zoom.
As you can see, I’m already dressed in my zooming costume.

Thankful Thursday

I am also joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop. I am thankful to be the fastest cat in the house. If I wasn’t, I’d never be able to get away from Misty May when she chases me. I may squeal when she does it, but I don’t get beat up.

Thanks for stopping in and reading my poem. I must say that I think I did a pretty good job for my first attempt. What do you think?

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid
