Thursday Challenge Poem, a "Predicament"

A Monumental Predicament;
 seeing reality through distorted lens
 
"Is it permitted," she asked,
"Five second rule I dare ask
May I blow dust off my crisp
Before it goes in my mouth
 
Or should I open a new
Feed this crisp to my feline
She'd have a tad to much salt
Dust.  Another hair ball start
 
I will not sleep tonight, not
until I know the answer
Monumental problem brews
What O what now shall I do
 
We will ask the cat, she knows
She eats off the floor, sometimes
I watch her, no worries there
O dear, O dear, I will cry."

It is always hard to lose a beloved pet. it is even harder to watch madness form.

I LOVED this! Always consult the cat! Your Amber looks very sweet. She lived a lovely long life, and you must miss her after sharing so many years.

The cat would know... so hard when you cannot ask any more.

Yes, ask the cat! I have an elderly cat who is leaving me with more questions than answers.

Some people worry about everything and if they don't have something to worry about they invent something. In little doses it is annoying. In large doses crippling.

Ha. That is very funny. I know people who use the five second rule even on the streets of NYC! They should ask the cat! Oh dear. Thanks for the smile. k.

We will ask the cat, she knows
She eats off the floor

The cats are aware. They have the answers. The humans are the ones lacking!

Ask the cat, certainly, the feline observes even with nose to the ground.

Thanks for dropping by to read mine Jim
