Austin the poet!


One thing's for sure, there is no doubt,
she often forgets that I am out.
When this happens, I have no choice,
but give her 'the eye' and lift my voice!


Come on old dear and let me in,
it's the only way to stop the din!
Pick yourself from off the floor,
And open up this flippin' door!


First I'll have a bite to eat
And then kip down and get some sleep.
But hark! I hear the dulcet tones
Of that darn tabby, Tigger Jones! 


He's on my bed and stretched out nice!
No doubt he dreams of birds and mice.
So there's only one thing that I can do
to show you all what I think of you! 



carbuncle, carb-uncle (noun) - a starchy male relative who's a bit of a drain

  3. Great poem, and love the carb Uncle. We don't have an uncle like that, thank COD. Glad the old lady finally let you in Austin. What was she doing, napping. She needs to get her act together. Take care.

    Austin, you are quite the laureate.

  14. I love the poem, I love YOU and Tiggy Jones too I must say. And both mom and I love the Word of the Day!

    By the way Austin, your header is just right for you. Makes us smile here in Tennessee every time we see you up there. Your glasses become you, handsome boy.

  29. What a fine feline poet you are! But honestly, tell that human to get you a cat door so you can come and go as you please. It's only fitting for someone with your talent, MOL.

  33. Oh my cat! It's Friday and mama's all tuckered out she says - and she refuses to write us a response poem like Nellie's. *sigh* PFFT, humans!

  34. Such a talented cat!
    Thank you, Dr Austin, you're an inspiration to cats everywhere.

  35. Wow Austin, Are you tryin' to win my Human's heart or sumfing? She's an English teacher who appreciates a fine poetic talent. For example, right now her students are studying Hamlet. When they finish, they can study YOUR fine poem!

  36. What the... I must be darn stupid when I read the definition of Carbuncle.

    I see an A.A. Milne in the making... I love your poems... if only it were that easy to make one everyday.

    Tigger Jones.

  37. Austin for goodness sake do ask your family to get you your own private entrance or a commissionaire - we hate to see you looking so forlorn knocking on the door for admission when a flunky should be waiting to oblige.

  41. Hey Austin! Be sure to come by later to read about the Coronation. I know Your People have this down to an art form, but we did our best over here, MOL!

  42. Austin going to play the cello after the day you had. Maybe get Mom to install a cat door for you so no more waiting around.

  43. Mummy never lets us out of the house, she said we are not very street-smart. But whenever we want to go into her room, we just have to Meow loudly and she will let us in.
