Sunday Wrapup: Comment of the Week



The post "Cat box" prompted Michelle to write this kick-ass poem:

"Padriac’s Parents had recycle paper –
A stack that resembled a smallish skyscraper.
The recycle truck was soon to arrive,
So they wrangled the stack to the end of the drive.

Padriac’s Pop hollered "Bend at the knees!",
As the mountain of boxes swayed in the breeze.
Once they got started they couldn’t well stop,
And the boxes on top were now starting to drop!

It’s a good thing Padraic had trained all the cats
From very small kittens to quickly react,
In case of a breeze-triggered paper stack sway
To prevent the dropped boxes from blowing away!

  14. “In case of a breeze-triggered paper stack sway” is a line worthy of Dr. Seuss. Wow!

  15. Liz R — heh, yeah, the meter is the same as in The Lorax, even. All you’d need is some grickle-grass.

    I like it the way it is, tho. (Both “The Lorax” and Michelle’s dilly.)

  16. Rah Michelle!
