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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

A massive dump

 If elephants were able to fly
 And soar above the clouds on high
 We'd just become a clump
 When they took a dump
 And that we can't deny!

Harvey the Hippo

Harvey the Hippo

Harvey is a huge hippopotamus
Who bathes in a bay that is bottomless
HIs mouth is as large as a riverboat barge
And he weighs ten times more than a lot of us

Big Harvey isn’t nasty or troublesome
Nor like other guys who are double dumb
He just wanders around stomping the ground
Looking for pieces of bubble gum

Harvey owns a fine yellow cummerbund
And sewn on the back is the number one
He wears it right proudly and bellows quite loudly
While playing outside in the summer sun

Once Harvey met up with a crocodile
Together they decided to walk a mile
Near the shore they strolled, but the water got cold
So they sat down to talk on the dock a while

Eating Oreo cookies about four apiece
They talked about matters of war and peace
They discussed the economy, art, and astronomy
And the huge immigration of foreign geese

Then walking back toward his new shiny house
Harvey stopped for a chat with a tiny mouse
Her name was Du Barry; they decided to marry
And soon come a baby named Stanislaus

A handsome young child was Stanislaus
Dressed up in his fine silken Spanish blouse
They all had made history; this was no mystery
For Stan was the first Hippopotamouse

Huge Harvey adored his sweet ladylove
From her wee little feet to her head above
He brought her some strings and other fine things
Including a snowy white turtledove

Harvey has grown really mellow now
He seldom produces a bellow now
But if you’re down by the bay, you can still see him play
This wondrous and gentle old fellow now

Jimerick: Racing Certainty

BI-POLAR BEAR PART II - NOT FOR CONTEST

Bi-polar bear’s crafty and mean So snooty she acts like a queen She’s cold and aloof Of that I have proof And was last seen on the latrine Bi-polar bear peed on the ice Bright yellow ice didn’t look nice To cover her tracks She grabbed her ice axe Her chopping was not quite precise Bi-polar bear made a huge hole And into the hole she did roll A male saboteur Did not rescue her He battered her head with a pole! Bi-polar bear could not be found It’s thought that Bi- polar bear drowned I’d love to raise a huge glass To whoever kicked her ass Sadly he did not hang around NOT for Contest Follow up to a poem written with Lin Lane in May 2017 https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/bi_polar_bear_collaboration_with_lin_lane_901528 11-07-17

   And a dinosaur called a Zupaysaurus.

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

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'

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.

There was a large cat from Llanelli
Who was terribly fond of spaghetti
One day out of menace
He travelled to Venice
