    Weekly Poetry Contest (140) Voting - Cat and Mouse

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Feb 22, 2011.

    Voting



    Only two entries this week, so let's see lots of involvement with the voting process.

    And this week's theme was (courtesy of Aszyllin): Cat and Mouse

    Voting will end on Friday 25th February 2011.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.


    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.



    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    Sill Cat
    By Scary Monster


    My cat sits on the windowsill; hidden behind
    the venetian blind with an Egyptian eye he
    measures time.

    His honeyed hair rises as the reaper stalks
    by. “Not today, not today!” His golden eyes
    decry.

    The cats seen death off once again, and even
    midian fears his name.

    What angels circle his cat brain?

    And demons all are put to shame, he cleans
    his fur and fears no pain, my cat died once
    and lived again!

    He sees the dead and knows their plight; they
    come to see him in the night.

    Their spectral lights glint once then die, he
    comforts all the ones who cry.

    Then mice he’ll hunt, he’ll smile and jump and
    dispatch them with a mighty chomp!

    And rats do spy and plot likewise, the long tailed
    cat’s sad demise, with rodent plots and bubonic
    schemes.

    They’ll come up against his sharp clawed screens,
    this cat won’t die, he has nine lives, and hissing fury
    is the cats reply.

    He strides the Earth and parts the turf, blessed to
    man and a rodent curse.

    Egyptian eyed he’ll measure time, forever in my
    fevered mind.

    Dear Theodore,

    Though we appreciate the thought,
    we just prefer our meat store-bought.

    We marvel at your pouncing skill
    that brings to us each daily kill.

    But even if we did eat mice,
    this many mice would not entice.

    Sincerely,
    Your Owners.
