This is sort of a “fan fiction” parody on the Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss

Damn cat in the hat…

The cat in the hat 

Had cleaned up the house 

The kids thought him fancy 

Adults saw a louse. 

But what they don’t know 

Is that every new day 

The cat goes to homes 

To take kids away. 

He takes them to dinner 

And out for a run 

He gives them some ice cream 

They have lots of fun. 

And when they get home 

From their date with the cat 

Their parents are clueless 

‘bout where they’ve been at. 

The kids think its funny  

To trick their own folks 

The cat loves to show them 

That parents are jokes. 

The biggest dilemma  

That stands to exist 

Is that the cat is in trouble 

He’s on their hit list.  

If parents find out 

That their kids sneak around 

The cat will be gutted  

In a tree, he’ll be found.

Fandango’s Dog Days of August

Today’s theme is “your temperament.” 

Be Kind, Be Brave, Be You!

If you ask most people they would agree that I am pretty easy going, most of the time, and easy to please.
I get a little ornery in a few situations:
*if someone accuses me of lying
*if someone tells me I am wrong about something that I know is 100% right.
*if someone wants to do something that is going to be a bad idea and they don’t want to listen to me about it.
*when I am super tired and haven’t had a meltdown yet

I am not high maintenance

I like kindness

I cannot stand the ugliness of purposeful nastiness

I am sensitive and think out everything, and I mean everything!

August Writing Prompt

Two hands are all I’ve got

Devostock BLUE SKY Two HANDS Hope

What I am doing

I’ve been here five days 

It seems like much more 

I try to be patient 

While I’m caring for 

My father who is 

Forgetting most of his life 

Because in the hospital  

Is his loving wife.  

I can only do what 

My two hands can do 

I try what I can 

And I will not be blue.
