Dr. Seuss I ain't..

or, Horton blogs a who?

They say we bloggers aren't so smart
We have no brains, we have no heart
Well I am here, I want to say
We are special in every way.

We blog of laughter
We blog of tears
We blog of chicken
And imported beers

We blog of our houses
We blog of our cars
We blog of signs
We blog of bars

We blog when it's raining
We blog when it's sunny
We write our comments
When your blog is funny

We blog of our work
We blog of our food
And when we are finished
We blog of our mood

We blog of our spouses
Our sisters and brothers
Our friends and our famlies
And then we find others

We blog of our drives
We blog of our trips
We make some mistakes
We blog of our slips

We blog in a car
We blog in a boat
In the middle of winter
We blog in a coat

We blog about peanuts
We blog about coke
Some of us even
Blog about smoke

Some bloggers live near
Some bloggers live far
If you're on my blogroll
I think you're a star

And while I have blogged this
It popped in my head
Dr Seuss couldn't blog this
Because he is dead

A blank from Liquid
A blank you see
I'm shocked at even
The possibility

You are my friend
My pal, my buddy
Your blogging style
I always study

Cliff Note: I did delete her comment because I know she's capable of better.

DD2's my newest friend
Go over to his blog and spend
Some time to read
Some time to see
His ideas, all are free

cathouse teri said...

Wow! That was great! I just thought maybe you were the NEW Dr. Seuss!

So... speaking of blogs... howcome you ain't been around? Did I offend you?

74WIXYgrad said...

Teri's a good friend
And a friend don't offend
Your blog I see
Most times with glee

My well has been dry
I've not been a wise guy
I've been all out of wit
But I'll make up for it

cathouse teri said...

Hee hee. Thanks for dropping by with your wit. :)

74WIXYgrad said...

Some people say
I'm full of it
But it's not wit
I think I'll sit

dons_mind said...

cool! good post cliff!

74WIXYgrad said...

To Don I say
Thank you today
To have a good rhyme
Takes a great deal of time

cathouse teri said...

My poems don't rhyme much.
Here's one impromptu one I wrote last night at Lakota's Blog Party:

Slinking by.
The bottom of her dress lightly brushed his bare feet.

He thought he would find shelter in the Hotel Del.
Surf was up a little too much!
But here… all were formalized.
He was not.

And she.
Slinking by.

If only he knew what that little brush did to her.
He didn’t hear the sigh. Didn’t see her eyes close a little.
She knew he felt it.
That’s what got her.

74WIXYgrad said...

But you captured the essence of your feelings.

all poems are about feelings.

I just happen to wax poetical when I am whimsical.

Your poetry causes me to dig deep inside myself to understand.

And that's a good thing.

Matt said...

Hi I saw your comments on DD2's blog and came over to take a look. I'm very glad that I did, you have a very clever blog here I wish you lots of good luck with it.

I wish I could have said that in rhyme , but I won't even try..
Regards,

Matt
