Poetry Thursday


It is Thursday and Angel Sammys and Teddys Pawetaton have sent us another picture to inspire my muse. Here is my offering

As Lin left to go to work

His wife Maya called him a jerk

He had forgotten that the day before; he did say

That today was take your son to work day

Little Key and his dad were dressed the same way

Both were wearing a mawash

Lin, too like Key to the dohyo

And told him to sit no matter how much he wanted to go

While his dad prepared for his match

Key found reason to from his seat detach

And ran into the center of the dohyo to fight

Big Yokozuna, with all his might

The kind-hearted combat went down like a rock

And the little boy went into shock

As Key was declared the champ

And was carried to the locker room via the ramp

Where Lin thanked Yokozuna kindly 

And the big man said resignedly

That the favor could be returned today

And Key turned to see Yoko’s little angel

A girl with a right hand like a barbell

And the fight would not be two out of three falls

Because the girl always won with a whack in the balls


  1. We saw the photo on other blogs and trembled to think what sort of poem we'd find here...

  5. What a grand ending!!! I was rolling on the floor with tears in my eyes
    Hugs cecilia

  6. HA!, Yes, that was a fun but painful ending!

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
