I appreciate that you thought it compelling. smile.gif

Conclusion...

There is no use believing in nothing,

For nothing is not much of a sin,

So start believing in something,

Is roughly where you should begin.


There are beliefs on the shelf

From one to quite a few

But to believe in yourself

Is really the one to do?

HONEST

I wish today,
Could be tomorrow,
For if it was yesterday,
leave's too much sorrow;

I wish there was a god,
For all the world to see,
So when things go wrong,
Blame him instead of me

Fallen

Remember they fell;

Recall the hell,

They could,

With regret,

We should,

Least we forget.

Any similarities or likeness or connection to any person, or animal or fictional character, is by coincidence, especially “The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea”?. The writer takes no responsibility;



ILL OMEN&TABBY

The owl and the pussycat,

Met in a tree on day,

Said the Owl to the pussycat,

Stay with me and play,

Said the Cat to the Owl,

With a sleekit smile,

Yes; let’s stay and play,

Least for a little while,

Cat naughtily swung his paw,

Ruffling feathers of the Owl,

Hanging grimly with a claw,

Then let out a horrid howl;

The Cat lost its balance; then,

Tumbled straight on the root,

Its lives spent were ten,

The Owl cared not a hoot…..

-=-=-=-=-=

BIRD AND MOUSER




The Owl and the Pussycat went to see,

Who was the prettiest?

As pretty could be,

Looked in the mirror,

Like you and me,

The Owl and the Pussycat,

Could not agree,

The Owl kept hooting,

Pussycat kept meowing,

No consciences

You see…..?

THE OWL& THE PUSSYCAT’S BLISS

The Owl and the Pussycat looked up to see,
The stars twinkling free,
The Owl and the Pussycat
Asked the question,
After the show,
By whom I don’t know,
“What are the Heavens?”
“It’s a Cosmos of Knowledge”,
The wise Owl continued,
“Resting place for souls”

“Floating knitting balls,
Created for play”
The cat did say,
Licked his lips, added
I like a piece of sole”,
The Owl and the Pussycat
Differ Socratic it seems,
The Pussycat stretched,
And back to his dreams.

The owl and the pussycat...


LORE

The Owl and the Pussycat,
Looked down to see,
A pair of sweethearts,
Holding hands carefree,
Said the Owl to the Pussycat,
“O how I believe in love”,
“It overcomes Badness,
Eases sadness”
Swoons a reminiscing Owl.

Moaned Pussycat to the Owl,
“I don’t think your right;
It may simmer underneath,
But don’t take a bite”
The cat showing his teeth
“Always makes me fight”
The Pussycat snaps;
Then closes his eyes
Laps into forty naps.
With uncomfortable sighs

Twinge of love

I shot an arrow in the air
Free of aim…Free of care
Grazed the skin, I declare
Of Cupid and Psyche sitting there
I shot an arrow in the air,
No reason other than fun
The arrow fell… loosing flair
Basic gravity had just begun
I shot an arrow in the air,
Watch it drop over there
Was it there, was it here
Scarlet Pimpernel flare
Neither here or there ,I fear

The owl and the pussycat


SOCK AND TEASE;

The Owl and the Pussycat sat on a tree,
Overshadowing the churchyard,
The Owl and the Pussycat, with glee,
Read words on the entrance card;
How life shall be lived;
“In the knowing” hooted said the Owl
“In the showing” purred the Cat,
The owl’s eyes blinked,
The Cat’s eyes winked.

The Owl and the pussycat sat in a tree,
Beside the graveyard,
The Owl and the Pussycat could see,
The etched written stone card,
“What of the afterlife?”
“I will have,
The longest debate
With passing friends”,
Said the Owl, knowingly,
I will have,
The most sedate
Beautiful sleep,
Said the Cat; longingly,
The owl whistled displeasure,
Almost a high peep,
The cat took measure,
And fell fast asleep.

Highwayman of the road

The black trusty steed
Sleekly dark inflight
Flies like hells heed
Swiftly thru the night,
Sturdy, strong and tall
Head held, reins tight.

By rider eager aware
Thu anonymous countryside,
Over dikes, styles, bare
Devilishly fierce ride
A highwayman indeed
Wings thru the night,

Holsters hold pistols two,
To fire if in need
Steal from frivolous few,
So his family can feed.,
Then into the night flee,
As fast as he came
Though a robber be,
Is he really to blame,


A fork, a road, a bend,
Ride as hell broke loose,
Both roads to the same end,
Dangling on a hangman’s noose

No man is an island…but his mind is….

Everybody’s on conversation,
Nobody is talking
Everybody’s exercising
Nobody is walking
Everybody’s is singing
Nobody is in tune
Everybody is winning,
Nobody feels the boon;

Everybody is crying,
Nobody sheds a tear,
Everybody is moaning,
Nobody sees it clear.
Everybody is laughing,
Nobody sees the joke,
Everybody is pilfering,
Nobody is in the poke

Tranquil;

I wish there was a ‘God',
So everyone could see,
When things went wrong,
They’d blame him instead of me

Concept

Can we see behind the mask?
Can we hold on beyond the task?
Can we feel after the pain?
Can we dry, outside the rain?

Is it play of words with Chekhov?
Is it Christmas without Rudolf?
Is there hearing wanting words?
Is there songs deprived of birds?

Will there be a story, lacking a pen?
Will there be Scotland minus a glen?
Will there be a Saltire proud to the core?
Will the Rampant lion once more roar?

Bare


Everything is changing
But still stays the same
Steadily adjusting
Under another name
Caricatures rearranging,
For the political game,

Mutual trickery fruition
Dialog is a miming act
Flip lip Deception
Is now a common fact

Just like Orwell’s game,
Scribbled with care,
Though minus a frame
His reality was ‘Blair’
Dire bagging an elephant
Futilely seen as clique
Vainly spoke out constant
Left him inwardly bleak

Frantic Jiffy

There are desperate flashes
Emotional Clashes
No physical pain,
Just bleak emptiness,
There’s no heart strain
Just dark timelessness
There’s no blame,
Just dire hollowness,
There’s no name,
Just spiral endlessness,
Then; instantly gone,
Until the next moment
