Furry Friends

by eyesreilly

Furry friends

I sit on a rock, with one rod in my hand,
The others cast out , and left in the stand,
I wait for the rod tip to dance up and down,
And think how I love this new hobby I’ve found.
But down in a crack, in a place I cant see,
A fat furry friend is looking at me.
He’s watching me bait up, with lug and with mack,
He’s waiting to launch his stealthy attack.

I fish on regardless, ‘cos I’m unaware,
That he has me fixed in his menacing stare.
The sun slowly sinks in the sky for a rest,
Me still unaware of my furry guest.
As night closes in and the fish start to bite,
Its time for the headlamp to give me some light.
At last I’ve a fish!, he’s reeled in and released,
Me still with no clue I’m being watched by this beast!

I cast out again, rag tipped with squid,
And its now at this time that the rat makes his bid,
But I sense something’s wrong, in my peripheral vision
I see that dark shape, it’s a rat on a mission!
Now I love to cast out and pull fish from the sea,
But the sight of a rat ,it does something to me
My legs get all shaky and my heart starts to race
Its time for old Eyes to get out of this place.

So the mobile comes out and I plead with the wife,
To “pick me up early, I’m afraid of my life!”
“Don’t worry”,she tells me,”They’re harmless i’m sure”
But she hasn’t seen the size of this hoor!!
I pack up and sit there alone and forlorn,
And wait till I hear a toot from the horn,
Goodbye furry friends, you’ve won out tonight,
I could have stayed longer, why it just isn’t right!!

sacrifice to the cat,who scares all the rats,

now dave loves his fishing,down by the sea,
but when it gets dark,hes afraid to pee,
its to do with his phobia,his fear of the rat,
i think ive the cure dave,invest in a cat!

what You want,is not, just an ordinary good cat,
you want one thats worse than a mean stinking rat!
a tomcat with eyes like the middle of hell,
a tiger,a devil,not wearing a bell.

A rat pokes his head out,a sarcrifice of meat,
he trys to excape,but the cat has him beat,
now all that is left is a tail on the ground,
and dave can fish on,with the hopes of a hound.

Thanks John, i'm wasted in the Council :lol: :lol: the only other poems I wrote were love ones to the missus and they worked like magic :roll: !! Its a bit of craic in here in the Blog,not that I know what a blog is :? I wrote a few poems about the lads I work with as well but I'll have to wait till I retire to let anyone see them :wink: As Noel says,give it a go ,everyone has it in them. The problem is that when you start it you cant stop rhyming everything :shock: We dont take ourselves too seriously thank God as theres a lot of critics around :lol: :lol:
