Garfield's Dream

Garfield knows the joys of relaxation Happily, self-absorbed, his napping seems, There can be no better explanation For the bubble picture showing his dreams. Happily, self-absorbed, his napping seems We love Garfield for his senses keener For the bubble picture showing his dreams Explains his fun comedic demeanor. We love Garfield for his senses keener There can be no better explanation Explains his fun comedic demeanor Garfield knows the joys of relaxation. SECOND PLACE WINNER written July 12, 2021 for "Pantoum" Poetry Contest - Picture #2 sponsored by Eve Roper All rhymes checked with Rhyme Zone.com 10-syllables per line checked with How Many Syllables.com

Yes, it is, Jan. This one was particularly challenging because Eve wants three stanzas and the typical pantoum is four or five stanzas. You should enter! Thanks for your comment.

Nah, this Garfield is a cartoon character by the renowned Charles Schultz. Oh, Garfield was also one of the U. S. Presidents who was assassinated. I'm certain neither has anything to do with the other!

Cats are all about relaxation. My cat sleeps a lot. I'm amazed how well the Garfield comic has lasted all these years. A comedian once told a story of taking his cat to the vet. The vet told him the cat was not well and should take it easy for a few days. He was stunned. 'Take it easy! The cat sleeps twelve hours, gets up, licks its butt and sleeps another twelve hours. What am I supposed to do? Lick his butt for him? Have a great day my friend. Congrats on POTD.
