Treasure Island

We all think Alike (Free Flow)


A dog and a cat,
sat and looked at one another.
Both wondering what each
was thinking.

The dog thought that the cat,
was thinking of running away.
That was not true the cat thought
if he makes a move; ' I'll claw him '.

The cat thought that the dog,
was thinking of food.
Maybe that was because of the way
he was eyeing him up.

Either way there were both wrong,
the cat was looking over the dogs shoulder at a bird.
And the dog was wondering, if underneath that fur
was a bone to chew?

Please take note, it does not matter
what you look like.
To guess what one is thinking, is not so difficult
we all think alike.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
