Thanks For The Door. By CpSingleton © 2016

Locked in a cave 

With the sun and a knave

And a cat with grumpy demeanour.

It could be our tomb

Like that time in the womb,

But the walls were a little less cleaner.

The sun searched for a door

Though, found nothing but floor,

A carpet and an old lollipop stick

There was a joke on the front,

Which made the grumpy cat grunt: 

He was starting to get on my wick.

The knave gave a holler

In hope soon there would follow

A group with tin hats and bright lights

But nothing came back

Not a Jill or a jack!

It was certainly one of those nights.

Then a plan was created,

Which the cat duly hated,

Whereby we’d dig for all our small worth.

I scratched and I dug,

Like a burrowing bug,

A tunnel wide enough to allow for my girth.

When said tunnel was done, 

And we were black from our fun,

We all crawled down the space in a line.

We soon arrived in Peru,

Where the sky was so blue,

And the Inca folk treat us real fine.


Three years soon sped,

As they are so easily led,

When it was decided we’d go our own paths.

We thanked our dear hosts,

With dance acts and large toasts

And returned to our homes for hot baths.

What became of the others?

Well, I’ll tell you, sisters and brothers:

The knave quietly returned to the pack.

The cat sold his story 

For the fame, money and glory,

Whereas the sun flitted off to dawn’s crack.

All in all it was fun,

My time with the cat, knave and sun,

But I have no wish to do it once more.

I’ll sit comfy in my house

Like a right royal mouse and

Be glad that my room has a door.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
