The Cat, The Dog and The Yellow Bird – fun poem – January 9, 2015

The Cat, The Dog and The Yellow Bird

Yum Yum kitty
Was a naughty little cat
Meowing in the kitchen
He spat at the dog.

Bow-wow went Ol’ Spot
He wagged his stubby tale,
Then crunched his moldy bone
And went plop on the couch.

Twitty Titty yellow bird
Chitter-chattered in his cage
Watched all the fun below
‘Til the cat caught him in his gaze
With a purr in his belly
Kitty leaped up with a whoosh
Going poing off the bars
He went smack on the ground.

Ol’ Spot growled and barked
Twitty Titty squawked and  screeched
‘Til the mistress with a pitter patter
Ran to see the cause of all the clatter …

In a blink of an eye, seeing what was the matter,
She wacked that naughty kitty
With her broom and swept him
Swoosh, right out the door!

    • Wow thanks Chris … there’s a story behind this little ditty. I read your comment and said ‘let me have a go’ which I did and then decided to copy and paste the result to Word … but what I did was paste and then copy and realized that I no longer had a poem but a Google search word in the middle of the page. The darn W.P. which usually saves every hadn’t and so the poem was gone except for what I could remember.

      At that time, hubby, who does not enjoy me using the computer nor my poetry came home. So I pulled out my notebook (the paper one) and rewrote what I could remember which was quite a bit as I’d read it out loud several times to get the rhythm right. Then retyped it and edited it later … and dedicated to you who gave me the idea. Thanks so much Chris for the inspiration and the reblog!
