Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Today's inspiration

Hockey Sticks

This is getting old
He has been told
put my paper in the special box!!
"don't throw my paper in to the snow"
Now it is time to scold.
It makes me say HBO words such as 
He-double hockey-sticks
by the time I finish my coffee will be COLD.

Poet's note:  I took a little creative liberty here.
Obviously anyone shoveling snow in their bathrobe
is angry about something.  I decided it was his missing newspaper. 
He went out to get the paper which was buried in snow!! 
We have issues with our paper delivery too.

  1. When I first glanced at the photo I thought it was a Scotsman wearing a kilt.
    Best of luck with future newspaper deliveries!
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. cold coffee is da worst, we totally agree... but how about ice coffee?

  3. HAHAHA.....We kind of thought that guy had a bit of a smile on his face....or maybe a grimace at how NIPPY it was with that breeze flying around UNDER his robe??? GREAT POEM - good job - this was a FUN one wasn't it!!

    Hugs, Teddy and Pam

  4. His legs must be freezing! Love your poem☺

  5. hahaha, love the poem.
    gah! I hate snow and ice. Yuck.

  6. We had a neighbor when I was young that thought nothing of wandering out in his bathrobe. His daughter and I were best friends since kindiegarten. She was mortified every time he went out in it!!! Ha! You are probably right on with him shoveling to the paper!

  7. Great poem! That photo had us MOL.

  8. Hari OM
    ...and all I could think was BBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR...! YAM xx

  9. Dad says that guy must be a Finn. Dad is a Finn, and doesn't mind the cold. His college friends used to call him Polarbear because he'd come back from swim practice with his hair all frozen and white. Son Jason is the same way and his nickname is Toasty. He's that guy who wears shorts in winter. I dont think either of them have gone out in winter in their bathrobes, though.

  10. We are amazed that people still get a morning newspaper.

  11. I gotta give this dood credit; regardless of why I'm shoveling, I am dressed like the kids from Christmas story ;) ♥♥☺☺

  12. Guess we are lucky that our newspaper shows up on our porch every time! I've shoveled snow in my pajamas...with a coat and boots on...but cannot image showing the neighborhood my bare legs like that!!!

  13. What newspaper. We gave up on the newspaper years ago. I remember when just about everyone got the paper. Not anymore. I like your literary license though. Well done.

    Have a fabulous day, Cecilia. Big hug. ♥

  14. HA, great poem. We still subscribe to the newspaper, sometimes it shows, sometimes not.

  15. LOL...what a great poem C! He does look pretty angry...LOL

  16. That's a great poem for that picture. We think that man would get cold dressed like that.

  17. Oh my - what a fabulous and hilarious poem! We have a similar issue with our USPS carrier who tosses boxes and mail into snow drifts.

  18. Great poem!! we can't imagine shoveling snow in a bathrobe! ha ha
