    For those of you who are familiar with Dr Seuss, use his words to describe your day today! Here's how my day went..

    I woke up today
    With a big hooray
    I finally got paid
    Then I got laid!

    Who's next?!

    Today was like sometimes,
    when sometimes is dull,
    but at least now I'm home,
    and my belly is full.

    It started so badly with a for-gotten lunch,
    and when I did things,
    no one said thanks a bunch.
    Then lunchtime came and my belly did growl,
    and within 4 more hours, my mind sure did prowl,
    dreaming of milk shakes, green eggs and ham,
    oh I would have even eaten spam from a can.


    So when quittin' time came,
    My shoes I quick laced,
    to put an end to the endlessness doggy cat race.
    I jetted from point A with a grin on my face
    To Porty point B with a donkey in chase.
    And there waiting for me, was my wife and little girl,
    and I stopped there so quickly I did a quick twirl.

    And man was I glad I got home in a hurry,
    to stuff my clown face, with some hot chicken curry.

    Edited a book
    Neglected my Nook
    Forgot to eat lunch
    Now I'm hungry a bunch
    Made a salad;
    Wrote a ballad.
    Not really but it's rhyme
    Now what's the time?
    TV shows,
    Then bedtime, goodness knows.

        Oh, gosh--I'd forgotten until you mentioned them about the Burma Shave signs.  We'd so look forward to reading the silly jingles as we drove down the highways and byways on our vacation trips... One that sticks in my mind to this day is:
        "She shot a bullet
        through his hat;'
        He'd had closer
        shaves than that."

        There is actually a book that has the full collection of them, called "The Verse by the Side of the Road."

    My day is so slow
    Hours seem to grow
    But in case you don't know
    My words at least flow.
    For breakfast I ate
    Green ham and dates,
    For the chicken was late,
    So eggs have to wait.
    Slow is my day
    But the bird song is gay,
    The gold fish are at play
    And the sky's turning grey.
    The Grinch isn't here
    Because Christmas ain't near
    And the cat in the hat
    He's become old and fat.

    Please go now; to the place where I bow, while crunching on crackers and soup.

    I had a good day, at the garden we  played;
    Foxes came so we gave them the boot.

    As I sit here and wish; I see the two fish
    the boy sacrificed on that long day
    It elates me you know, and my faith it still grows, Christ Jesus really makes a way.

    Nevertheless, it bugs me I guess to be privy to something so true.
    While "they" stand around wearing adamant frowns thinking SCRAM!!! but I think they sound blue.

    It's the end of the day
    and I'm glad that we stayed
    but I hope we agree with the truth.
    He said this is the way; we must not be delayed! He keeps crying, but they all just HEAR WHO???

    Annegma, I liked your "adult" version of the good Doctor, and so, in that vein I composed this in my hammock:
    Woke up with a beer
    Dont know how it got here
    My geese they are honkin´
    My head it is knockin´
    Had a big glass of rum
    To soothe my poor tum
    Took a small bit of acid and learned that God is a frog
    When he barked though I realized—it was only my dog!
    (Just joking, folks, and I hope this does not get me banned from HP!!!)

    Why do they call it
    a brand new day?"
    Everything old has
    Not gone away!
    Same old stomach,
    With yesterday's food...
    Same old thoughts,
    Same old mood.
    Same ol' sun shining
    Up in the sky.
    Same ol' everything!
    It makes me sigh.
    Couldn't I wake up
    to a brand new world?
    A kaleidoscope sky,
    All multicolored!
    Not just blue,

    Not plain white clouds,

        As though in a row,
        And what I do,
        Is let them go,
        Oh, its a nuisance...

        Dogs?   (Uh oh…now you've done it…)
        Three beating hearts
        Are waiting for me.
        I hear their whines,
        "Please set us free!

        We want to walk,
        We want to run,
        We want to explore
        And have some fun!

        We're waiting for leashes
        And your guiding hand,
        The hand that will lead us
        Out to the sands.

        There is our freedom
        Where all is new,
        The scents and sea breezes
        Of the sand dunes.

        And in the ocean
        We'll chase the ball.
        You'll will throw it in
        Just so far.

        We'll splash in the water
        Roll in the sand,
        Chase the sand pipers
        And dig up sand crabs.

        Out on the beach
        We'll play and romp…
        But, master's in bed;
        Time to wake up!

        If not the beach,
        Mountains or park,
        We'll be content
        With a walk around the block!"

            Thank you. Loved yours too. Its so good to attend to our dogs and help them learn things. I guess some people let them watch TV. There are shows which feature images just for dogs: gold fish swimming across the screen etc. Some dogs like to watch the horses in westerns. Yes, I could make a poem out of this… I will spare you.

            Here's another one I channeled from "THE Doctor;" ( But off topic.)

            Couch Potatoes

            We keep our dogs in fenced-in yards
            Yet, we know their lives are hard.
            For beyond the fence, what do they see?
            Deer and chipmunks running free.
            Beyond the fence, the raccoons roam;
            While our dogs are stuck at home.
            So, we let them watch TV
            and lounge about so comfortably.
            But watching shows made just for mutts
            will turn them into you-know-whats!

    His ears flip, flop, flapping
    With each wild doggy bounce
    He enters the yard with a barky trounce
    Excited to train weave poles
    Needed for agility shows
    He speeds through them like a black sonic blur
    Going whiz, swoosh and ssllluuurrrr
    After 12 he runs out like a black and white mop
    Spinning back to a treat for a job done tip top

    So what am I doing today?

    The sun did not shine, it was too wet today.
    So I sat in my house all this cold, damp, grey day.
    I sat at my PC and started to yearn
    For a Hub that went "viral" and helped me to earn.

    I sat in the house and I stared at the wall.
    Did inspiration come? No, it didn't at all!
    So I'm sitting and waiting for a Hub to go viral
    But it seems like I'm caught in one big downward spiral.

    I have no ideas. Not even a clue.
    As for earning a Buck, I don't know what to do.
    It's probably time for a nice cup of tea
    And wait for the Muse (with a biscuit - or three)!

    I like this idea haha. Quite original!

    Let's see.. This may not be very Dr Seuss style but what can I say!

    Waking up at odd hours
    I spring from my bed
    I make my breakfast late at night
    What else can be said!

    For when you have insomnia
    It won't let you rest your head
    But I fear not though,
    Because I'll sleep when I'm dead!

    Even though I love to sleep when I can get some haha(:

    Would I? could I? cut my hair?
    I could! I should! cut my hair!
    Should I sit down in a chair?
    no, I should stand
    and not give a care.

    So I cut my hair in my house
    while my sweet kitty chased a mouse!
    Now people will see me
    I look well groomed
    Just have to clean up the hair
    with my big brand new broom

    Now I will go out here and there
    I might even shop for new underwear!

    My dog, my kids, my closed front door,
    'Twas hodge podge cleaning until ten past four.

    The dogs beard was tangled and got a chop,
    The babies diaper so full of plop.

    The eldest, smelled this, choco-lit a lot,
    And asked, and asked like her stomach forgot.

    Saturday, Where ever did you go?
    Maybe you'll start, Once there off to bed though.

    Wash it?  Soak it?
    Polish it well?
    My dearest mama
    Ye think me Adele!

    My hands in pale glory
    Not birthed for such toil
    Daintily tremble, as both prepare to strike
    Vulgar thou art in preparing me to spoil!

    Mama? Adele?  Who may thee be?
    Ye both seem oddly two terrible asps!
    Averting my eyes, I reach for a knife,
    Slither away and get ye both from my grasp!


    (Yikes!)  I just had to use "asps," right?

    These are hilarious, and the exercise is honestly fantastic.  Never thought myself much of a poet, but Dr. Seuss has definitely inspired me!  Thanks for this thread!
