Jim is the host and gave us this picture and the word, cold. Here goes…
Poor, cold cat (Cat in the Hat fan fiction)
And now he was back. The Cat in the Hat And even though cold, he ne’r worried bought that He worried ‘bout green cheese and even green eggs He worried ‘bout spiders and all of their legs He came well prepared, that Cat in the Hat He came with some bug spray and his big baseball bat He told the kids stories that his pop told him Even ‘bout working, which sometimes were grim But he smiled and nodded to keep the mood light Or else these two kids would end up in a fight Then mom would be mad that the Cat came to call She’d make him leave quick with his stories and all She’d make him run far and tell him not to come back ‘Cause common sense manners their mom did not lack She’d tell him to stay away far from her house “I’ll call the police! You dirty old louse!” So the cat kept on walking, even now in the snow ‘Cause home was the only place he knew to go.

The Cat finds his kite
The Cat in the Hat was somewhere brand new he didn’t know who lived there or lived there with who. He saw lots of toys and some stuff in the yard He tried to look inside, curtains made it hard.
He thought that he’d knock on the door that’s bright red Perhaps they’d know him by the hat on his head Most people did know him for what he did wear He was famous to most, though he couldn’t care.
So he walked up the walk and he stood nice and straight he walked up the steps and he closed the front gate He didn’t want pets that might live there to leave Most kids did have pets, or he’d like to believe.
When all of a sudden from up on the roof A balloon went by flying, then popped with a Poof! Down to the ground a bright paper did float He bent down to get it and saw it’s a note.
The note it was written in crayon and pen Was the writing he noticed from a little boy Ben? The note was so sweet that the Cat he did cry Ben had an old kite that the Cat used to fly.
The Cat was so happy to get back his kite He smiled so big with his teeth white and bright. So Ben lived in this house that he just stopped by And now he and Ben watch their kites blow and fly.
I haven’t visited the Pub in so very long! I was happy to see this challenge as I love my Thesaurus! Check it out here
There were two prompts to choose from – this is the first choice Write a SOUND POEM which includes AT LEAST ONE from EACH of the FIVE HEARING CATEGORY SELECTIONS below: (reference the hearing words you chose in your post).
The bellow I heard was a dissonant sound I could feel the loud blabber through the dirt on the ground Poetically troubled and embellished with horror My mind tried to grasp that the man was a snorer Instead of just sitting and feeling the wrath I imagined myself getting in a hot bath This helped calm my mind and clear all the clamour Even though my deep voice continued to stammer I walked right away trying to keep myself happy Realizing listening to this was like a bad, dirty nappy.
This is the second choice: Simply write about the Thesaurus, as the above poets have – what it means to you; describe it, have fun with it. Let the synonyms flow, or antagonise with antonyms.
There are no restrictions on poetry style or meter but those of you who like Acrostics might want to make a nine liner for THESAURUS.
The Cat brings a Thesaurus
So the Cat in the Hat came back to the house with a book in his hands too big for a mouse He loved this great book since its loaded with words he couldn’t wait to show them since the amount was absurd He knew that the kids would love a book such as this Like the Swiss love the alps there’s not one word to miss.
The Cat in the Hat knew the mom would be mad if she saw all the toys and goodies he had. He tried to keep quiet and out of her way to keep her distracted was the way he could stay.
He started with smiles and a proud, firm handshake His brow started sweating, she would know it was fake All he had to get by was this first “How d’ya do?” Then to get to the kids, just he and those two.
So he started to walk on his back legs to show that he knew that his back was the rude way to go. The mother was pleased by the Cat’s gentle tone She was happy to leave the three of them all alone.
The Cat took his bag and all the tricks he had found The comics and posters and the car with the sound He spread them all out on the rug in the room He had his own bag and could clean with his broom.
The kids were so happy to see all his stuff He wondered if they thought there wasn’t enough. But for hours they played without one single fight A perfect fun day led to a quite tired night.
Write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character.
The Cat makes a list
Well the Cat in the Hat was up to his tricks looking for kids to bring into the mix. He had a big list of things left to do like tidy his bag and polish his shoe. He also had things like talk to the fish, walk on a ball, balance a dish, take a long walk, Sing a new song, play a new game, the list was real long. The Cat sat to think about what to do first he decided a drink who help quench his dry thirst When all of a sudden he finally found a book and a pen to write it all down. He wrote down his list in a second or two He loved the red ink and also the blue. He jotted and scribbled until the paper was full He put on his hat and gave it a pull He went on his way to find some kids to play and decided to leave the list to some other day.
