Verses of the Six Degrees replayed

Usually I reblog here the posts and articles of others in order to spread them around. Tonight I ‘reblog’ (re-post, actually) one of my own efforts which occurred to me in 2015 via the creative inspiration of Mr. A. Cat…but posted here only for those who don’t mind a little bad poetry:

Mr. A. Cat’s Verses of the Six Degrees

In Kevin Bacon’s Six Degrees

there nestles Tudor’s tale

a royal son exalted high

was then tossed into gaol

A Bard and poet prophet he

renowned both far and near

fate’s new Atlantis his ideal

bequeaths a haunting fear

Such hallowed halls of Science trod

old Francis and his staff

genetics our cruel master now

enjoys his mocking laugh

As followers expand the dream

with solitary eye

in pagan hearts a beast to roar

all decency defy

That hidden plan becomes more clear

as plainly can be seen

from chaos order is employed

by head of state and Queen

In modern times the game descends

to liars crooks and knaves

who conscience-free purport to be

footloose to dance on graves.

Wintry Thoughts for December 13, 2010

Today is Monday December 13, 2010 and the US is gripped in Winter’s grasp in many regions of our nation with 8 days to go until Winter Solstice 2010. Yes, WordPress’ snowflakes across the page look festive and perfect for the season!

Now no one knows why the muse of bad poetry tends to light rather frequently upon my shoulder. If I could explain it I could probably stop it. But not today for I’m in a holiday mood that begs for snowy expression however minor it may be:

As wintry winds begin to blow
remember Mama told you so
your scarf and mittens are a must
to counter winter’s freezing gust!

And if you have a moment, you’ll find it won’t take a sled but only a simple click to discover my latest science-y/poem-y blog Woolly Mammoth Chronicles where I express in rhyme my personal misgivings about Science’s plan to clone from fossil DNA a long-extinct relic of the Ice Age, the woolly mammoth.

My ‘Odes to a Woolly Mammoth’ are the inexplicable result, plus, Science News links and odd videos are included as well so check it out and answer the woolly mammoth poll, upper right, if you wish to weigh in on the weighty woollie’s proposed return to ‘life’ – or to some Frankensteinian version of it.

Also, your feathers may be ruffled to know that my Political Astrology blog Stars Over Washington was updated this morning concerning the astro-atmosphere on Capitol Hill: this week’s lame duck session is marked by Monday’s Fire-Water combination of The Seeker and The Mystic!

The Winter Solstice 2010 horoscope is there as well: see sidebar for Top Ten SO’W posts which is where you’ll find my December 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse article with chart image, too.

Hope you keep your feathers dry and warm! jc

Prez Election Rhyme: it had to be done

Well, the November 2008 prez election is closing in and will be here before we know it – I waited for you long as I could but apparently you hadn’t written anything of the rhymery persuasion so it had to be done such as it is:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2008/08/prez-election-rhyme-2008.html

This rhyme’s not the fault of Mr. A. Cat…all the blame’s on me this time.

Of course, you could’ve stopped it but you didn’t. And I know you’re busy. We’re all busy. I just happened to have an extra 25 minutes earlier tonight and this is one of the things that can happen when you give me a pen, paper, and some free minutes.

Okay, my peace has been said now so I’ll go watch Kiefer Sutherland on The Late Late Show with TV’s Craig Ferguson (sans moustache, thank goodness.) Reminnnnd you of anyone?

Cat limericks Obama’s overseas tour

At last! Mr. A. Cat has gotten through to us at Lim’s Limericks with a freshly scratched limerick which seems to apply to Barack Obama’s recent overseas tour of presidentiness:

Karl No-Show Rove

As you know, Mr. Defiant was a no-show yesterday on Capitol Hill, so I penned a poem in honor of a man who knows all the Bush skeletons personally:

Cat from Iran: a limerick

There once was a cat from Iran

who got hot and turned on a fan

it wasn’t enough

to cool off his fluff

so atoms were split in Tehran.

He worked long and hard on the splits

while George threw incompetent fits

by acting so proud

no weapons allowed

or sanctions will come in a blitz.

So who gave the arms race it’s start?

who played the gargantuan part?

America’s clout

could take the world out

but that wouldn’t be very smart.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
