Oh green-eyed cat that tortures me so,

Playing with the ribbon you stole,

From my bucket of ribbons by the table leg,

A minute later a sudden loud pop,

I jump to my feet in fear for my life,

Looking down I see the Cheshire grin,

Of that green-eyed cat with a tattered balloon,

In his sharpened claws,

Oh green-eyed cat that tortures me so!

Tiny green-eyed kitten

camoflaged by stripes and spots

and colors of the elements.

Asleep beneath my chin

soft purr against my skin.

A small ribbon held a bell 'round her neck

to warn big crushing feet.

I even tied a balloon to her once

but it wasn't there for long.

Green-eyed cat now naps

in the middle of the street.

A muck bucket was once her home

when we were too long gone.

Fearlessly she leapt too far for any kitten.

Now running straight up and straight down

To heights of fifty feet I swear

in cypress trees so tall grown

in a swamp where many critters lurk

unafraid of snakes and 'gators

For scarred table legs and doorframes

prove keenly sharpened claws

She meows and talks and growls

and barks better than any dog

Straddles railings 30 feet above the hard cement

She's big ole' green-eyed cat today

Camoflaged by stripes and spots

and colors of the elements.

The green-eyed cat humps the table leg

And pop goes the balloon.

Guitar I make from my ribbon and bucket

To play out under the moon.

Green Eyed Cat

My green eyed cat of the black and white fur

uses the table leg like a pole in a martial arts movie.

Wrapping one paw around the leg to attack with the other.

Balloons are fun, they glide all over the place.

Slipping and sliding, the chase is on. Them POP!

Oh dear, what a noise! She hides under the bed tail all poofed.

Is that a snake she sees? No just my best ribbon for a gown.

Oh what joy, a silky new kitty toy. Lets see how far it will uravel?

Too late the Mommy found me out, saddness, my toy is gone.

She hides in a bucket, hoping no one sees.

Black fur on top of white. Silly cat hiding in a bucket!

We will never shatter her delusion Shadow and light.

This is my Emily. She thinks she is the Quality Contro Cat for Ruben's Girls my Business!

Or...

My Cat Is Deadly

A Philip Noir Detective Vignette

The rain smashed into the office window like a puch-drunk welterweight, throwing it's mass against

the fragile pane only to pause, catch its breath and then resume its attack.

I pulled the Yellow Pages out from under the broken table leg, causing the entire table to lean crazily,

like a dame that's had one too many martinis with her flower-club cronies.

A balloon drifted indifferently past my open window, the office fan causing it to temporarily alter course

and bob up and down like a duck with constipation.

I tossed the empty office bottle into the waste bucket. Just another day shot, another bottle emptied.

A swell dame came legs first into my office, trailing a scent of violets and wearing a hypnotic green

ribbon around her pencil-slim throat. She was a green-eyed cat and I was the willing mouse...

The green eyed cat

With black silky fur,

Was tied to a table leg

He couldn't endure.

He decided one night

To escape to the moon,

And tied a red ribbon

To a bucket and balloon.

He clambered inside

And off he did float.

Thjat's all there is

To this story I wrote.

There once was a green-eyed cat from Nantucket

Who carried a table leg and a balloon in a bucket

He also had a ribbon

With nothing to rhyme with ribbon

And that's the end of poem so... :tease:

~ You all are wonderful! :friends: & funny :lol:

I guess I ought to try, huh?

{No. I didn't choose words from something I wrote! I was being obnoxious, just random words.}

green-eyed cat

table leg

balloon

ribbon

bucket

{Sorry, otherwise I don't remember 'em. OK! } Crap, I was really obnoxious, huh?

So dark in the room, silent but for the rain

hollow dripping in a wooden bucket.

A ribbon of dim light falls, slipping through torn curtains

the moon glowers swollen as a red balloon

low and about to pop on sharp tree shadows.

Sound of movement, movement of sound?

There, wrapped around a table leg

sinuous as smoke, a green-eyed cat

one with the shadows.

... I guess Hallowe'en's coming up, huh? :lol:
