Disseminate: FOWC with Fandango

For: FOWC https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/28/fowc-with-fandango-disseminate/

spread (something, especially information) widely.

It was typical for Bruce to disseminate the entire podcast word for word. He always seemed to have the type of memory where he could practically resight things like that. I guess it could be a good asset to have except the reason Bruce was there listening to the podcast by himself was because nobody cared about the topic!

Good Acting

When we walked out to the mezzanine 

My eyes were filled with joy 

For there upon the stage below 

Was my own born baby boy. 

He had his hair brushed to the side 

As his father taught him how 

He had his tie done up real tight 

To stay tied while he took a bow. 

He knew that he was there to act 

And acting is what he did 

He didn’t have to finagle his crew 

They were proud of this young kid.

Scuttlebutt – FOWC with Fandango

For: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/19/fowc-with-fandango-scuttlebutt/

rumor; gossip

Coffee Instead

Sitting around the water cooler 
or sitting on a boat 
we all like to laugh and smile, 
we all love to gloat. 

We think the things that we do right 
are better than the rest 
but this is all just scuttlebutt 
We can put it to the test. 

Did you really? Have you ever? 
Did they answer you? 
The best thing is to walk away 
Instead, enjoy a brew.

The Cat Learns a Lesson

The Cat in the Hat 
knew not what to do 
when the boy and the girl 
were busy in school. 

He tried to tell them 
to say they were sick 
They told him that was 
an old, useless trick. 

The Cat was so desperate 
to have them each day 
He really didn’t care 
‘bout his unorthodox way. 

The boy and the girl  
said they really must be 
in school every day 
not watching TV. 

They knew if they didn’t 
get an education 
their future was bland 
without a nice vacation. 

The Cat bowed his head 
‘cause he knew they were right 
He told them from now on 
He’d see them at night.

For Fandango: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/11/fowc-with-fandango-fit/

The Cat’s New Game

The Cat in the Hat  
came back to the house  
He knew that the kids  
were with mom and her spouse.  
 
He took out his fist  
and knocked on the door  
The kids they were happy  
to see him once more  
 
He told them he wanted  
to play a new game  
he said he would tell them  
Choo Choo was the name.  
 
He said that the game  
was to work as a team  
to fit each together  
like a train full of steam  
 
Hold on to each other  
march along like a group  
walk in a circle  
make a big, giant loop  
 
Then make a loud noise  
like a whistle of steam  
isn’t this fun  
to work along as a team 
 
The Cat said goodbye 
when he cleaned up the toys 
Choo Choo was a great game 
even with the loud noise.

Study: FOWC with Fandango

Written for: http://vedotoh.com/2020/10/06/fowc-with-fandango-study/

Needing a study-buddy

When my work is getting hard 
and I really need to study 
I try and take a walk around 
to look for just one buddy 

I never had much success 
in learning from someone new 
but sometimes I just kick myself 
for I haven’t any clue 

Reaching out to other people 
to try and help myself 
is really what I need to do 
and put my pride up on a shelf.

Antipathy – FOWC with Fandango

Written for Fandago: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/09/27/fowc-with-fandango-antipathy/

a deep-seated feeling of dislike; aversion.

Always on Edge

Settling down with my mac in my lap 
I feel the damp air, I need a long nap. 

The sun doesn’t shine per the CDCC 
Okay that’s a lie, and it’s made up by me. 

I don’t like the days of tooling around. 
I feel like a pauper with his head to the ground. 

What I wanted to do was just sit here and veg 
Antipathy keeping me right on the edge.
