My green eyed grey cat Calamity
never craved a kitty clique.
She preferred a singular insanity,
my green eyed grey cat Calamity.
I suppose I wounded her vanity
when I adopted that mewling pipsqueak.
My green eyed grey cat Calamity
never craved a kitty clique.


Pandora is the supreme drama queen.
She never cued up for Siamese serene.
You should hear her purr,
when she’s feeling secure.
Panda’s poses would suit the silver screen.

SPOT - Limerick


I once had a puppy named spot
I really loved him a lot
But he chewed all my socks
Destroyed all my frocks
Now daily I visit his plot!

petting zoo
Well it's not actually structured but it just came to me. Here goes nothing...

"the forest for the trees"

Ran over a squirrel on my way
to occupying Wall Street
It was in my way but I remain blameless
God should have given it wings

Stupid irrelevant squirrel I thought
to myself laughing.

True story...
My parrot loves to squawk and talk
but even more that that
he barks just like our doggies
and meows just like a cat.
he loves to whistle many tunes
but what is so absurd
is when you're speaking on the phone
you cannot hear a word.

I'd like to gag the pesky thing
so he could never speak.
But I cannot find a gag so small
it fits around his beak.
So we have to sit and bear the noise
and his shrieking in our ear
unless of course we let him out
and watched him disapear. (:

But alas he cannot fly
he's much too blinkin' fat ):
for everytime we have some food
he screams as well for that.
Maybe one day he'll whisper
when he's really, really old.
But the buggers live for 70 years
or more, or so I'm told!

Perplexing Parrots
While they're brilliant I'm never too sure
if they know my intentions are pure.
There's no warm blooded ties
and they own evil eyes.
A pet parrot holds no tempting allure.

Mutual Support

Hurt my dog and your dead
was the actual word I spoke
The guy smirked till I moved
realized that it wasn’t a joke
The dogs only barking for fun
he thinks you wanted to play
Be nice and you needn’t run
be nasty you’re going to pay

My neighbor has a plethora of pets
she must be a huge hit with her vet's.
Her parrot won't harm
he spit out my left arm.
The cutie-pie collects RSVP regrets.

Pet of the Month

Once met a dog in the Bog
said that bone you have looks funny !
It said I am just a Katoey
what do you want for your money !

A mean Queen!
I once had a kitty named Queen
The cutest kitty I've ever seen
But she chased a mouse
All over the house
When she caught him the mess was obscene!

Cat Capers
Panda will chase mice it's true
but she can't keep it in view.
She'll hunt all around
when mouse goes to ground
and then, to me, she does mew.

I swear Pandora can't believe
I don't have cat tricks up my sleeve.
So, I sadly help out
as a mouse roustabout.
As the vermin does a dodge and weave.

When mouse is cornered and caught
both cats closely inspect what I've got.
They're very polite
and know what is right
the spoils belong to she who's been taught.

The moral of mouse hunting is thus:
Ignore the night stalker's fuss.
If you put your oar in
you never will win
so just retire with a commoner's cuss.

Pretty as she is loud
I own a conure who loves to sing;
It’s amazing the joy she can bring.
Though she can’t carry tunes,
At such volume she croons,
I’m quite deaf now and can’t hear a thing.
