poetry time

it all started with an e-mail from my sister Jenny.


Luc sent this to me to make me cry!!

http://handicappedpets.com/bendy/


And I followed the link (don't worry, it's not really upsetting), and discovered....Bendy Kitten.

Which I think you'll agree is the best name for anything, ever.

So to amuse myself and Jenny, I wrote a poem about Bendy Kitten.

Bendy kitten, oh Bendy Kitten
Forced to wear some special mittens
On your freaky bendy paws
Were they brought to you by Santa Claus?*

*Couldn't think of anything else to rhyme with paws


And then Jenny mailed me a second verse, by her friend Luc:

Oh bendy bendy kitten,
If you fight, then you'll get bitten
You can't run away my friend,
If you try, your little legs would bend.


So of course, she had to write a third verse:

Will you grow up to be Bendy Cat?
Only you know where your future's at
Maybe your legs will turn out straight
I hope you don't have long to wait.


At this stage I was in a state of extreme laughter, and almost couldn't read Luc's final verse:


When kittens are naughty,
You can scare them with threats...
...That you'll put up their pictures,
On handicapped pets.

Off the top of my head: roars (with a cut-glass Brit accent "raws"), gnaws, jaws, chaws (doubtful, but make a go by declaring it a folksy variation), caws (what crows do), gauze, haws (hee-haws - but the emPHAsis is probably not going to be right), laws, maws, could stretch with an Suh-thrun Ah-mehr-ikan accent with force ("faws") and oars ("ahws")... saws, yaws...

Okay, I'm being silly. Let me say, also, that the poem's a fine collaborative work!

Hee, thanks! I can't believe I didn't at least think of "jaws"....

Well, if my accent's going to be declared "cut-glass" just for being non-rhotic, you can have my dead posh "bores" "restores" "adores" "implores" "snores" and "helibores", too.

Also, "laws". And "flaws". Not that he's not a perfectly valid disabled cat. I'm just rhymin'.

Aw! Hee!

When we went to the cats home to get our cat, there was a 'special needs' cats department which included the adorable "shaky cat". It had some kind of cat Parkinson's which gave it a permanent tremor. I think it needs a poem.

Awww! I'll get my sister on it.

And, poor Bendy and Shaky. Evil cat breeders, making freaky twisty cats! Isn't Bendy Kitten terribly cute, though?

Awww. Very sweet little cat and very fortunate to have found such a caring "mom".

Are you going to set those words to music? Maybe a song for your next album? *g*

Hee! Oh dear, I'm now coughing I laughed so much!

I'm with socmot, this needs to go on your next album.

You are a poetic GENIUS.

Hee! Thanks! But most of the credit belongs to my sister and her friend Luc - I only wrote the first verse of this epic. And Luc wrote what I consider to be the masterpiece - the final, moving-yet-sinister stanza....

I have come from daegaer's memories to discover the origins of Bendy Kitten...

I first read a Bendy Kitten story about 6/8 weeks ago in daegaer's memories, and I thought I'd finally check out where Bendy Kitten came from, so here I am.

To honour Bendy Kitten I have made an icon, which I use in celebration.

Also, in honour of Bendy Kitten (among other things) I will friend you (if that's ok by you?) *grins sheepishly*
