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!
For legal reasons it's good that you didn't switch the last two lines.
HAHAHAHAHAA!! It didnt occur to me at all until you said it LOL
And now I look stupid since that's not really how my day went.. IMAO
I'm not sure Dr. Suess would have used "And then I got laid" unless, of course, he was voicing the character of an egg!
I'm on a hub drive
I'm feeling alive!
Gotta pump out more
It's something I adore
Cool!!! That was awesome. Share some of that drive please!
I huste, I trouble, I stumble
I seek, I peek, I've reached
I've tamed, I gained
The cost, I'm drained
I end this day
but never like this
once more or the same
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.
You have officially beaten Dr Seuss at his game! Loved it x
Woke up, got up,
Ate grubs, wrote Hubs,
Made lunch, ate lunch,
Did chore, wrote more,
Had dinner, what a winner,
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?
Then bedtime, goodness knows.
Good one! And it also reminds me of the Burma Shave signs I used to like.
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.
Good Lord if i went on a date with you, you would eat me with Green Ham??? If you're going to do that at least add a salad on top! LOL Nice one though
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???
Boy what a day. The wind is super high. The sun was shining and at times it was hiding. Working on a Hub that I almost finished. Now it's time to eat, any suggestions.
I wrote, got my coat, bouta drink like a sailor on a boat. Haha never was much of a poet.
I got out of bed, then scratched my head, wondered what day, oh Saturday! I laid back down and stayed in my night gown, the work week is through, so Im sleeping. shoo.
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!!!)
My dirty tissues all in a row,
I watch the row grow and grow
as I blow and blow my nose,
wishing my cold upon my foes.
Today I am sad
Because I mad
An orange is all I had
For lunch in my pad
I can't write any hubs
As I've had no grubs
Now I'm in my tubs
Getting ready to head the pubs.
Just started realising
I should be be revising
by working on physics
instead of looking at google analytics
Tried to make the last line hubpages appropriate but it didn't seems to fit properly.
My school competition's today
Prepared speech is such a bore
Something must be wrong with me
For it's the Arts that I adore!
Brand New Day!?
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,
Not just blue,
But pink, yellow, red!
Not plain white clouds,
But magenta, instead!?
(- very guilty of being raised on Dr. Seuss.)
I practically think
In Dr. Seuss rhyme.
Yes, it happens
All the time.
Words pop up
As though in a row,
And what I do,
Is let them go,
Oh, its a nuisance...
Yet I do play.
All through the day.
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!"
...or weave poles!
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.
Fantastic! Are you sure you're not THE Doctor himself??
Here's another one I channeled from "THE Doctor;" ( But off topic.)
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!
I've got one (though I did see it somewhere else on the Internet, it still applies!)
"The Cat In The Hat On Aging"
I cannot see
I cannot pee
I cannot chew
I cannot screw
Oh, my God, what can I do?
My memory shrinks
My hearing stinks
No sense of smell
I look like hell
My mood is bad--can you tell?
My body's drooping
Have trouble pooping
The Golden years have come at last
The Golden years can kiss my ass
He goes bouncy, bounce, bounce
All through the house
Until he reaches the back door yapping
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?
Training weave poles to my pup-a!!
Feather in my Soup
by Jacqueline Williamson
Sitting on the Deck
Feeling just like heck
Bird just swooped by and dropped a feather in my soup
Looking to the sky
Critter sure ain't shy
What’s with dropping by and putting a feather in my soup
Wondering what to do
Really feeling blue
Until that bird came by and dropped a feather in my soup
Now I’m feeling glad
Putting away the sad
Pulverized the bird that dropped a feather in my soup!
A brief rhyme in honor of my 3rd hubbing anniversary:
It was three years ago today
FatFreddysCat came to HubPages to play.
He posted some stuff
Some was good, some was fluff,
And soon he decided to stay.
Feeling like shyt
Down in a pit
But I'll not stay forever
Because I'm far too clever
I see the stars above me
And gaze at their glory
Never say any good byes
It may draw flies
Crazy thing I woke up today
Had some sugared cereal with a hurray!
I wished I did not get out of bed
happy dreams still spun in my head
I could have had yummy toast
but I had no yummy bread to toast
And, now I am sad. sad I am
Wishing I was, I say a rich man.
I would leave this town, and that's no joke
And fill my life my a new home, and good folks.
But, I'm still here, and that's just lame.
But, this was fun, should do it again.
Two days of rain were cold and grim
And filled our septic to the rim.
Now we wait for the truck with a pump
To take away those gallons of... dump.
I got up early to write.
But I had to Fight
The Desire To Play
And Not Be Clever Today
I wrote A Poem
On Topic Forbidden
Read Some Hubs
And Thought Ya Got To BE Kidden
Now I read the Forum
I have NO Decorum
I am Wasting Time
Making Lines That Rhyme
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)!
Thanks for the post. I used to read Dr. Seuss to my daughter all the time. So here you go.
Declutter my basement,
To free some space up,
Paper here; Paper there
Blue Papers too!
Boxes, books, manuals you must shoo!
Before this day is over, I will feel like new!!!
I woke up today,
tired as can be
With a heeve-ho,
One, Two, Three.
Walked to the kitchen
my whole body was ka-put.
Limped to the coffee maker
on my main good foot.
Thank God for you!
Without that black medicine
I wouldn't know what to do.
Very creative! You just described my day! Thanks for sharing. :-)
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!

I didn't. I stepped away for about nine months for stupid reasons, which caused me to lose a lot of productivity time.I look at people who have been here for short periods of time who have written more hubs than me and it makes me more motivated than ever to be as great at this thing as I can...

How would you describe your spirituality?
by dohn121 10 years ago
I had some horrible first dates and I'm sure that you had some too. Sometimes they were horrible because I was careless and sometimes...Not. Your take?

Mine is lonely and promising, and I am thankful.
