A Bossy Old Cow - For Contest

A bossy old cow in the street

was rolling while licking its teat!

When it howled like a cat,

I thought: What’s up with that?

Can bossy old cows be in heat?


Inspired by both a poem and the limerick contest of Jan Allison

Baboon

There was a baboon in my bed,
I thought it appeared to be dead,
So I turned out the light,
But it chattered all night
And swung off the curtains instead.

Python

The python hung down from the tree,
It hissed and it scared little me,
I gave it a whack,
To make it turn back,
And have someone else for its tea.

Funny Squirrels


Funny Squirrels!


My yard harbors lots of big trees
And in them live squirrels with ease
In comfy twig nests
They do what is best
To live and survive as they please.

I feed them some nuts every day
And watch how they run 'round and play
They know me so well
And come 'ring my bell'
By tapping on window this way:

They come to the back kitchen door
Jump up on the rail from porch floor
On wide window sill
They sit very still
With paws against glass beg for more.

I push up the window with glee
They know I'm their friend, for you see
My hand holds their prize
They watch with bright eyes
And take nut away tenderly.

Now one day I thought I would try
To give something new, and so I
Supplied day old bread
With smooth peanut spread
They loved it so much, with a sigh,

I made little sandwiches soon
On bread placed nut butter with spoon
New great treat for them
But so surprised when
I saw chunks of bread below strewn!

They learned how to get at their prize
Nut butter between, and so wise,
With paws, they would pry
The bread part would fly
Enjoyed just the spread—I surmised,

Like kids open cookies to get
The cream that's inside and not fret
To throw rest away
Enjoy them that way—
The squirrels saw their need was met!

Too funny, these squirrels taught me
They're smarter than I thought they'd be
They do things their way
With we humans play
Together we live happily!

ANIMAL ANTICS

A tall giraffe at our local zoo Got neck ache, (as giraffes often do) With his neck being so long The pain was terribly strong That he couldn’t reach the leaves to chew The giraffe doctor was quickly called At the condition he was appalled He told the staff not to laugh - Just get giraffe in the bath So to the bath the giraffe was hauled Well you can just imagine the sight The poor staff the giraffe tried to bite! They got him in the tub Gave his neck a good rub Then they tucked him in bed for the night They were told they must keep his neck warm … To this order the staff must conform Staff decided to knit A long scarf that would fit It’s now part of giraffe’s uniform! Animal Antics Contest Sponsored by Shadow Hamilton 09~05~16 N B The title will be amended after the contest to - 'You're having a Giraffe' which in rhyming slang means you are having a laugh.

Could not wait to go see his horn

Dinosaurs From A To Z

My research reveals there's an Allosaurus

   And a dinosaur called a Zupaysaurus.

      As you can readily see,

         I have searched from A to Z,

            But am yet to find one called a Thesaurus!

Rats

New York City is overrun by rats!

   And is driving the poor citizens bats.

      Guv'mint will botch extinction.

         They ne'er act with distinction.

            I'd suggest they bring in legions of cats!

The Vet

Heard them say that I’m off to the vet
It’s for my annual booster you bet
He is fetching the lead
Here he comes yes indeed
And into the car I do get

I do not like the car very much
Travel sickness I get just a touch
If they take me to far
I’ll be sick in this car
But I just can’t help it as such

We arrive at the vets safe and sound
I drag slowly for this I have found
It’s a waste of time 
Going to the vets is a crime
I’d rather be back in the pound

Now there putting me on the scale
The nurse says I’m as fat as a whale
This is no fun
I just want to run
But alas I must sit on my tail

At last I’m led into that room
I know that it not for a groom
They lift me on the table
For to climb I’m not able
At last I fear it is doom

The vet has moved round behind
That thermometer looks none to kind
He says it won’t hurt
In a manner that’s curt
Now the thermometer they cannot find

Next it’s the jab in the neck
I could bite him but what the heck
It’s all over now
It’s much worse for a cow
As I leave the surgery I wreck

Then just as I’m off to the door
I hear the vet say one thing more
He needs more exercise
To decrease his size
To hell with that that’s for sure

So back in the car to go home
I feel my mouth starting to foam
Then I’m sick on the floor
Someone open the door
In this car I just hate to roam

Now free of the car I need the loo
The fresh green grass will do
As I open my bowel 
The smell is quite fowl
The thermometers there in my pooh

So home again I will take to my chair
Relax and unwind as is fair
Too much stress for today
Just want to sleep and lay
For the exercise I just do not care

So my trip to the vet I’ve relayed
My owner took me and has paid
So leave me in peace
All wrapped up in my fleece
For my sleep has to long been delayed

Hello Kitty

There was a cat from the city
who thought she was purrfectly pretty
But a dog  chased her down
Almost running her out of town
And that did upset Miss Kitty

You best be believin'
That Miss Kitty got even
 She rounded up a cat posse
And they  scratched up the doggie
Now the poor mutt is grievin'

Girl From Nantucket

I once knew a girl from Nantucket 
Who chased down a goose, just to pluck it
As she ran, took a spill
So he gave her a quill
And I guess we all know, where he stuck it


Just not clean enough for contests---lol

Animal Magnetism

A pet more exotic I'd wanted.

A pet to be groomed and then flaunted.

not a dog or a cat

something cooler than that!

I began my search feeling undaunted





In a pet store I came on a ferret.

Such a pain he was! How did I bear it?

Under doors and through cracks

He'd escape from me. AAAACH!!

So I traded him in for a parrot.




Well, the parrot just wanted to fly!

And that bird knew more bad words than I.

When he called me a whore,

I threw open the door:

“Now you’re getting your wish, Bird. BYE BYE!





A boa constrictor I bought,

He’d like to be cuddled, I thought,

But he wrapped and he squeezed,

As I gasped and I wheezed,

And offered the rat that I’d caught.

 

A bowl of piranha I won -

I played Baccarat with a nun -

And they wiggled their bums,

So I tickled their tums,

But bones ’stead of fingers aint fun.





My elderly aunt sent a text,

Suggesting tarantulas next,

But my spider alas,

Took a bite of my ass:

My pet-owning hobby is hexed.





I went to the pet shop, I swear,

But nothing I wanted was there -

To my pets I am prey,

So I went on eBay,

And purchased a big teddy bear.

Gracie and Frankie

Gracie and Frankie were frogs, who were sitting on two ends of a log. They met in the middle, and started to fiddle, now their tadpoles all swim in a bog.

A Dumb Squirrel

The Squirrel climbed a tree in a dash 
While climbing he got a big gash 
He went to the store
In through the door
But soon found he forgot his cash

A Sguirrel Named Merl

" How do you do?" "My name is Merl."
I'm not a tree rat; I'm a squirrel.
To hunters, I'm screamin,
"Please eat more chicken!"
"Never mind, you shoot like a girl."

I should build my nest in a tree
but your attic looks better to me.
A fight? It's your call.
I'm a little buzz saw.
Remember; nuts are my favorite treat!

   There are thwongs and thwongs of bunny wabbits!

      They're so very numerwous,

A Dog And A Cat And A Flea

A dog and a cat and a flea,
All sat down to some tea,
They all ate some ham,
With some bread and some jam,
And were all as content as can be.

Pasta cat

There was a large cat from Llanelli
Who was terribly fond of spaghetti
One day out of menace
He travelled to Venice
Where he dined in the sun on a jetty.

There once was a hog and a big old dog,
Who made friends with a frog on a log,
T'was a wonderful sight,
On a moonlit night,
A dog and a hog on a log with a frog!

NONSENSE TALK--FOR CONTEST


I once heard an old, gossipy rat

Whose desire was to live in my flat, 

So kitty got her way

They’re buddies to this day,

And party on gin for a chit-chat

Cats Outside My Window

I wake at two a.m
Cats outside my window
Fighting screeching moaning
Honey, what the heck is going on
I don't know
But, could you stop with all the singing

Elmer the Frog

All the reptiles gathered round
When Elmer the frog hopped into town.
There never was such bloated glee
As Elmer croaked his history,
Then from his pad fell and drown.

The old hen

There was an old hen in a coop,
Her favourite dinner was soup,
And the eggs in her nest
Were the biggest and best,
But covered in inches of poop.

Spring Fling

Spring Fling


In the midst of the instinct to mate
she went sniffing around for a date
and once on the scent
all her energy spent
succumbed to spring’s arduous fate
