Another Swipe of the Paw

This week’s poetry offering comes in the form of a song.


But not just any song, mind you!

This week it’s a parody of one of my all-time favorites bands- Pink Floyd!

Do you recall this song?


Well here’s my take on it. I call it:


Another Swipe of the Paw


We don’t need no snarling kitties!
We don’t need no smacking paws!
They sit there looking nice and pretty.
When backs are turned, out come the claws!
Hey! Kitties! Leave us pups alone!
When all is done I have another scratch on my nose.
Ouch! You evil kitty! Quit scratching my nose!

  8. Love this poem! I had a bad experience with a Malamute the other week, but you seem like a nice Malamute with a good, responsible owner. Love ‘n’ licks, Millie the Lurcher

  10. Oh, Rumpy! What have you done! Pink Floyd were musical geniuses – light years ahead of the curve! What’s next? An “Ode to Joy?”

    Just kidding. Loved it. But I do love The Wall, and always have.

  14. My cats think you did something naughty to deserve the punishment given out by the cats. I’m not sure what to believe!

  23. Not your gorgeous nose! That is naughty kitty behavior. Whatever you do, don’t scratch them back. It’s not worth it!

    Love and licks,
