Mr Magoo

I had a black cat called Magoo
The slippers and clothes it would chew
This damaged its jaw
And broke every claw
Thank goodness I had super glue!

There's a ravenous rhymer named SKAT
who prowls prose like a big jungle cat
Check your door cuz she might
(if she likes what you write)
leave a word for you on the front mat

This limerick is for my Soup
buddy SKAT who was the very 
first person to welcome me to 
the Poetry Soup community.

Granny had a yellow cat

                            Granny had a yellow cat Matty Sand-arum
                       She was fond of Cherry Blossom and bubblegum
                                       Cherry ached in her tummy
                                          Bubble is double balmy
                   She yelled out scummy gummy and fell into the scum

Fat Cat

Once upon a time there lived a cat

And this cat was much, much, much too fat.

The mice he did ignore.

His treats came from the store.

The mice were safe unless on them he sat.

I Once Had a Gray Cat That Could Clog

I once had a gray cat that could clog
and was better than any old dog.
His feet work was fast
but stardom didn’t last
when he fell for this stunning tree frog.

My gray cat and tree frog was to wed
on night he was to dance for our bread.
He got very sick
when frog he did lick
was quiet toxic, now gray cat is dead.

When gray cat finally reached cloud nine
told gate keeper he was feeling fine.
Though he looked quite green
he captured the scene
when he clogged to the front of the line.

The Cat And The Rat

There once was Princess the cat
Who found a big fat hairy rat
She brought it in to play
But mother said no way
And found her a very big metal bat

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'

Homer The House Cat

He called himself Homer the house cat
And mostly ate tuna with pork fat
After lunch he'd meow
'Nearly upchuck his chow!
And grin like an overstuffed wombat!

Halloween Night

What's wrong with these people tonight?
They're screaming I gave them a fright.
"A black cat!" they shriek,
but only last week
they held me; I purred with delight.

These neighborhood kids are so weird.
On Halloween night I am feared.
The rest of the time,
my life is sublime.
To all of them, I've been endeared.	

It soon will be November First,
and I'll be no longer accursed.
I'll hear, "Look at that,
a beautiful cat!"
Man! Halloween night is the worst.

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.

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.

A serial killer named Dexter
His victim's wounds they would just fester
He causes great fear
To those that are near
He'll pounce on a mouse just like a jester

My Persian LICKS with abandon
A cat with a mission in hand'en
When suddenly he chokes
HAIRBALLS stuck in his throat
And upchucks over me where I'm standin'!

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

Cool the snazzy cat

                                Cool the snazzy cat stole a tiger's wife
                                   Fed her a mix of kiss and Nutrilife
                                             She was a tigress
                                           And could not digress
                              From the logic of " kill cool without hype"

Flat Cat

Skippity doo, skippidy dat,
I jumped over my pussycat,
Doing it just once more
I slipped upon the polished floor,
Now pussy looks quite flat.

Some Limericks...

She’s out there chasing a cricket

Through bush, through shrub & through thicket

Together they hop

Fugitive, cop

But when she gets it, she just wants to lick it!

A cat whose vet took his eye

Just cannot quite understand why

His eye’s been enucleated,

3-D vision reduciated,

So now, he keeps an eye out for an eye

Ya gotta keep limericks loose

Think green eggs, or perhaps Dr. Seuss

They’re structured, it’s true,

But they’re also a zoo

Whose tenants are all on the loose!

I frolic in fountains of words

Overflowing with serious absurds

Each poem I write

Wakes up and takes flight

Joining angels and faeries and birds

You ask that we write a good limerick

How to do so, I haven’t a glimmerick

So I struggle and frown

Teaching  poems to clown

So a smile on your lips will be shimmerick

A cat with a mouth full of mouse

Brought her feast right into my house

She played with her food

Who was not in the mood

To be a banquet of mouse in the house

The nightmares that shadow my sleep

Stampede the proverbial sheep

Right out of my mind

When I try to unwind

I find my appointment with sleep hard to keep

In her search for original truth

She met people unsavory and couth

She knitted and purled

But only unfurled

Yarns told by new age and old youth

Cat, suddenly pink,

Drinks her water from out of the sink

She looks so absurd

Since she’s been de-furred

I really don’t know what to think!

If one and one is two and two is four,

And there’s only two ways to go through  a door,

Then, is earth up or down?

And, where is down town?

These are questions we need to explore!

A was that is an is

Tried to mind my biz

But I sent it packing,

Its presence was lacking

And I don’t have time for such shiz!

A couple who lived in Los Lunas

Loved the wide desert sky’s crystal blueness

They’d stare at the air,

Over here, over there

And rejoice at the feeling of newness

A cat with a very fat gut

Found it easier to walk on his butt

He’d drag it around

Across carpet and ground

And use it to slam the doors shut

Said the Missus to her dear Mr. Otter,

“There’s something I think that you oughta

Do before we get old

To protect us from cold –

You oughta make the hot water hotter!”

The ghosts who live up in my attic

Make noises that sound much like static

I’ve tried to send them away,

But they’re here to stay,

Those staticky ghosts in my attic

There once was a cat named Lucky
Thrown from a car that was junky
With a broken jaw
And a broken paw
Now she is pretty much spunky

Scotland in Pawn's Dreams

Scotland in Pawn's Dreams

A visit to Scotland in Pawn’s dreams
Means grinding and riding little steams
Bout clouds know how to mark
Send battered skin as stark
And then kitty cat walks in sunbeams

My cute cat Meenie

                                    My cute cat Meenie laid an egg

                                       It was very hazy and vague

                                          Meenie laughed a little

                                         Dad, the egg was brittle
                                   In lovemaking he missed his leg

Ornery Cat

Simba's an ornery cat says the vet

  During visits both get greatly upset

      Simba grumbles and hisses

         Not at me or the missus

            But at the vet who ain't tamed him as yet

My little blue cat

                                         My little blue cat Bumbie

My Adulterous cat

                            Meeni slept in bed with a big brown cockroach

                                           She growled like panther

qoute: "a man chases a woman until she catches him." 

how sweet this maiden of ron’s heart lays
with flair for whooping sensual grace
   in balmy weather
   tied bells together 
now it’s linda’s turn to make the chase

but fragrant lure matched with poetry
imprisons man in lush mystery
   when she swings her hips
   his mind flops and flips
it’s hubby chasing  smooth chemistry!
