Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

POETRYSAM

Welcome Poetry Friends!

Today’s poetry is honoring the letter “B” – if you feel so inclined (or brave) you can put your poem in comments – just make sure it’s about something starting with the letter “B”!

Bones

Yes indeed my bones – they show

I’m slim and trim and moving slow

Without the weight I’m limping less

When I was chubby I was quite a mess!

I’m moving easy, my limp is gone

My shoulders slim and I’m feeling strong

I’m looking good – oh yeah I’m classy!

There’s lots more time on my old chassis!

We might be old, our coats a bit tattered

But we’re young at heart and THAT’S what matters!

There you have it!  Another poem squeezed out by yours truly about the joys of getting older…………but I may have a lot of mileage on the chassis but the engine is still running well.  

Every Thursday now I’m exercising my “poetic license” and writing a poem using each letter of the alphabet which means of course that NEXT WEEK’s little gem will be about something starting with the letter “C”…………hmm………wonder what it will be.   CATS?  Maybe – maybe not.  You’ll just have to wait and see!

Have a Poetic Day! 

Hugs, Sammy

P.S.   Today my dear, sweet friend Nellie from Nellie On The Edge is visiting Washington, DC to hit the campaign trail for Smoke and Joe AND I had a “meet-up” with her and even got to ride her beautiful new pink motorcycle!   Lucky me………….If you click on the link above to her blog you’ll get to see what she got up to here in the town that never sleeps when it comes to campaigns of ALL types…………..REMEMBER, VOTE FOR SMOKE AND JOE FOR PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT!   The SENSIBLE choice (tee hee) !!

SMOKEANDJOE

Here are just two of the wonderful photos we took while Nellie was in town……………to see them all, please visit her blog…………Nellie is campaigning HARD for Smoke and Joe!!!!!

Oh Nellie....you are my forever and ever friend!!

Oh Nellie….you are my forever and ever friend!!

Oh I love your new motorcycle Nellie!   It's so YOU!

Oh I love your new motorcycle Nellie! It’s so YOU!

Thanks for the campaign memories Nellie!

    • Oh Cupcake……I’m sorry you’re on treat restrictions but I bet you are WAY more cuddly with some extra weight on…..of course your beautiful dresses wouldn’t fit…..that’s the downside!

      • OMG, Sammy, the thing is called ‘Poeta doctus’, that is, scholar poet or learned poet. Thus, your title should be “Poeta Mogtus”. BTW, my name is pronounced as ‘chili’, only the ending is an ‘a’ and not an ‘i’.

        • Oh I’ve often wondered how your name is pronounced Miss Csilla! So it’s a CH sound…..it’s a pretty name!!!! One day you should send me a photo of you so I can keep it by my computer for Poeta Mogtus inspiration!

  1. Isn’t Nellie just the absolute best of the BEST!? Smoke and Joe are going to do great since they have Nellie as their campaign manager. You look great on her new pink motorcycle. I got a ride on it a few weeks ago. It was a THRILL! That girl is strong!
    Your poem was excellent. I wonder of you have considered offering your help to Nellie Bellie for campaign slogans?

    • Hi Katie! I knew you’d gone for a ride on Nellie’s pink-a-cycle too! What fun – and she’s a very safe driver isn’t she. We had fun in Washington, DC and hopefully gave a big boost to Smoke and Joe. I haven’t offered to do slogans for her – I think she’s up to her beautiful silver eyebrows with projects right now and don’t want to add to that……….busy busy girl!

  2. That is a very good poem, Sammy. I am glad your limp has gone and you are feeling good. I agree with you about our coats not looking so good. My mum says it looks like I am wearing a fur coat that is 2 sizes too big for me. All the thick plushness doesn’t lie flat any more but stands up, especially over my haunches, and looks like I have had a fright. As you say, we are still here and that is much more important than appearances.

    • Oh Flynn when we were once so handsome (which of course we were!) it’s tough to look in the mirror and see “OLD GUY” isn’t it! My coat is kind of patchy and I have places on my ears where I’m bald…….doctor says it’s not unusual with thyroid issues but still, it just makes me look SCRUFFY! Oh well – we’re alive and we’re here and we’re taking care of our humans and that’s the important thing right my friend? They need us – BIG TIME!

  3. Bravo with a B Sammy on your Thursday Poem! we will pop over and see what Nellie has been up too..such a sweetie pie she is 🙂 ok..drum roll..*bad poem alert*
    B
    Burn Off
    This weekend involves a new burn off
    The weather though is a real turn off
    So the kids we have coming to stay
    To help.but most likely get in the way
    I will be making Baked Beans
    And wearing my jeans
    I need another holiday
    Yep..this poem stinks like a skunk 🙂 Loves Fozziemum xxx

    • HAHAHA! No the poem is fabulous! Really – “Burn Off” is a perfect subject for you since it seems (I’m sure) endless when you have to do that every year. How is it coming anyway? Nice that the kids are coming to help out – maybe you can get it all done FASTER – don’t feed them until it’s DONE – that will get them motivated!!!

          • EXCELLENT! Forty can feel like 140 though when you’re not used to a lot of company – but knowing you it will all run like a well-oiled machine and be tons of fun not just for the bride and groom but for all the guests…..!!!!

  4. That is a great poem Sammy- I am shocked that you didn’t do one about bacon though 🙂 Phoebe is sorry she didn’t do a B poem, but she has one now:
    Brody is our newest cat
    he is such a brat.
    He sits on Mom’s lap
    but when she’s not looking,
    he gives us all crap.

    And, you and Nellie look great on her motorcycle. XO

    Like

    • HAHAHAHAHA…….That’s a great “B” poem Phoebe! I think you all need to be more “gracious” about Brody – imagine how tough it is for HIM fitting in with all of YOU! Love the poem though……..AND I sure had fun with Nellie on that pink motorcycle!

  6. Hi Sammy what a great poem. I am not there yet but we keep telling brofur Buddy that he should cut back a bit. I think Dad just likes seeing him with a good appetite. He still gets the night crazies and is a hoot to watch.

    B is for Brofur Rumpy, who is quite the lump
    He lays about all day with nary a jump
    For a Bobtail he has not even a Stump
    Only a tiny small little Bump
    We love him no matter the lack of jump or stump
    He is our Rumpy, our Rumpy Bump

    Woo Hoo we will run over and visit Nellie and see that cool new pink bike!
