Catbombing the ACE Poetry Contest Is Fun As We Cats Play With Poetry

By Poetry Cats Sammie and Sheba, assisted by Paul Krivonos, ACE Board Member

Yawn. Sammie here. I was busy writing an epic poem but fell asleep.

We are glad that Joycat and Mobilecat have jumped in to add their thoughts to the Association for Continuing Education’s ACE Poetry Contest blog about National Poetry Month. If you are wondering why there haven’t been more cat posts in relation to all of the dog posts we have seen in the past, just remember the old cat 😺 proverb (from our very most favorite book, Francesco Marciuliano’s fabulous tome, I Could Pee on This, And Other Poems by Cats):

 

They say there are
Twenty-four hours in a day
But I’m only up for three of them
And two I consider overtime

We did want to write a poem ourselves, but we fell asleep half way through, so we each borrowed a couple of our favorites from Francesco, one from each of us and one from both of us:

Sheba’s choice is called, BUSY, BUSY

It’s 8A.M. and time to rest
It’s 10A.M. and time to relax
It’s 3P.M. and time for repose
It’s 6P.M. and time for siesta
It’s 9P.M. and time for slumber
It’s midnight and time to snooze
It’s 4A.M. and time to hang upside down
From your bedroom ceiling, screaming

Sammie’s choice is called, CLOSED DOOR

LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN
LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN
LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN
LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN
LET ME IN LET ME I-
Oh, uh, hello
I did not expect an answer
I did not expect an entrance
I did not expect this room to be so unbelievably dull
So, uh, goodbye

Here’s the one poem that we both could decide is worth blogging about:

Hey, I’m Sheba, hanging out here. On my chair.

THIS IS MY CHAIR

This is my chair
This is my couch
This is my bed
This is my bench
This is my chaise
This is my settee
Those are my footstools
Those are my rugs
Everywhere is my place to sleep
Perhaps you should just get a hotel room

That’s enough from us for now. It’s you humans turn to come up with some great poetry like cats do.

And we’re raising a paw to Riley and Lucy. 🐾
