Herding Cats

herding cats s

Got a blue blue car
in a black and white world,
Got that turquoise blue car
in a black and white world–
Gonna play it gonna drive it,
gonna give those tires a whirl.

cats 2 & 3s

Well a cat they likes to wander,
 likes to ramble likes to roam.
Both the he-cat and the she-cat
needs to ramble and to roam.
If you ask them where they goin’,
they say “everywhere’s my home”.

Do you wanna rock and roll now–
Do you wanna take a ride?
Do you wanna tune this engine,
come and take a little ride?
We can meet up at the crossroads–
enter leave from either side.

crossroads s

Well the road goes on forever–
I can’t say where I’ll be bound.
You can just keep on forever,
can’t predict where you’ll be found.
Here’s a car and there’s a highway–
a big ole world that’s circlin’ round.

cats 4 & 5s
Got a blue blue car
in a black and white world,
Got that azure sky blue car
in a black and white world—
got the key in the ignition,
gonna make that engine purrrrrrrrr…


This was my  (rejected, as usual) entry for Rattle’s Ekprastic challenge in February.  The poems that were chosen were good, but quite serious.  I found the photo to be much more playful…and did my own collage interpretation as well.

Am I back?  I’m kind-of-moved, but still mostly in chaos.  I’ve also got (paying) work pending, although they haven’t actually sent it to me yet.  I will do my best for NaPoWriMo, and try to catch up with everyone at some point this month.

And thanks to Nina for filling in so beautifully!

      Thanks Merril. My computer is finally working (thanks to my daughter) and my office is usable, though many things have not yet revealed where they were packed. but it’s always good to have a traveling song.
