Hello and happy Thursday! Let's have some fun with Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge.
As always, our host shared a photo prompt to help guide us. This week's prompt is this delicious one here:
After I drooled a bit over that photo, I thought about what type of poem I could turn it into. Since I like having my poems star feline characters, I decided to dramatize an actual experience I've had with one of my parents' kitties. So, here we go.
Once Upon a Time
Once upon a time, I fired up the grill.
It was the perfect day to relax and chill.
I cooked myself up a big, juicy hamburger,
And then I topped it with everything, and extra mustard.
One upon a time, I sat my hamburger on the table.
In my diet, this meal was a true staple.
But the very second I took my seat,
I realized I forgot to pour my beloved sweet tea.
Once upon a time, I had my sweet tea in hand.
In my seat by my hamburger I was ready to land.
There was just one tiny, little problem, though.
My thief of a cat stole my hamburger right out from under my nose!
Once upon a time, I searched high and low.
Where did my thieving cat and stolen hamburger go?
Finally, I found my cat.
Behind the couch she bathed and sat.
Once upon a time, my cat's face was covered in mustard.
In ketchup and hamburger crumbs she also was covered.
Not a single bite was left for me to even nibble,
And so I found myself yet again firing up the grill.
Now, let's give some thanks. After all, it is time for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
