Carlton Becomes a Poet

It's Friday - the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

Carlton Becomes a Poet

by Carlton Cat

The Mr and Mrs are both at work today. I have a bit of time on my paws so I have decided to become a poet. Here’s my first attempt:

Ode To A Salmon

'Twas nice of you to swim about
In seas and up the river
But now you’re sitting in a dish
About to be my dinner.

Brilliant, huh? I expect my work will soon be studied in schools and appearing on those Most Popular Poems lists. I'm going to write another poem soon but I am an ARTISTE so I have to wait until the Muse visits me. I have a few things running around in my head. Does anyone know a word that rhymes with pandemonium?

Anyway, writing about salmon has made me hungry. Off now to investigate my food bowl. Then I shall take myself off to a soft duvet where I can contemplate the universe. (UniVERSE - get it!? I frighten myself with my brilliance sometimes.)

I haven't quite got the knack of using chopsticks like this cat, but I'm working on it.

  1. Great poem. Yup, for sure it'll be studied for years to come ;)

  2. I am so impressed Carlton. How about euphonium, harmonium??

  3. Great poem, Carlton. It made us hungry, too.

  4. Nice! I hope the muse visits again soon.

  5. Carlton, you are an excellent poet and I hope to be reading more from you soon. Mom thinks I'm allergic to fish, so there won't be any salmon on my plate anymore.

    I'm curious to learn what you're trying to rhyme with pandemonium. I bet it's interesting and maybe a bit mischievous.


Thank you for your commenting; it's purrfect.
