dilatory: slow to act

******I hope I don’t make you all crazy with my Cat in the Hat poetry!******

The Cat Waits

The cat was so sad 

The children were gone 

They had to go out 

To school ‘cause it’s fun. 

He wanted to play 

But was dilatory 

He should’ve been sooner 

And now he’s sorry. 

The cat he decided  

To stay at their home 

He’d wait for the bus 

He’d try not to roam. 

When the kids got to him 

He’d be ready to play 

He’d make sure the toys 

Were hidden away 

From the mom and the dad 

Mom tried cleaning the house 

When the kids were at school 

She worked with her spouse 

But once they get home 

He’ll take out the toys 

They’ll play with them all 

They’re for girls and for boys. 

And once they are done 

The cat goes away 

Back to his own home  

Where he’s gonna stay.

Simply 6 Minutes – Trevor

This is Trish’s contribution to my challenge!

RANDOM THOUGHTS by Trish

My contribution to #simply-6-minutes for this week, Tuesday 1 September 2020.

6 minute challenge lizard Lizard, by Stine Writing

This is randomly different!
The sound of this beast is familiar, even comforting.
The feel of the beast, the deep rumble is also a constant.
But something has changed!

Normally I travel in the plastic box, with the lid of holes.
Down deep in the darkness of Simon’s schoolbag.
I see light only in three places; between house and car, car to classroom – and in the canteen where Simon takes me out to play with his friends.

They call me Joe.
The name I call myself is Trevor!
But, I’ll answer to Joe in the small ways that I can.
I don’t run away and tolerate them handling me and nibble on the scraps they drop into my box.

The children are delighted.
I am tolerant, but bored.
BUT this new adventure is excellent!
