My Cat Thinks I'm a Plonker

My cat thinks I’m a plonker.
'And why? ' I hear you ask:

‘O puddy-wuddy sweety beeps,
My fluffy-wuffy, time for sleeps…
Now come to Daddy for a hug –
But is he feeling nice and snug?

Let’s rumbly-pumbly on the floor,
Then catch a mouse behind the door.
O Marmy-Warmy Marmaduke (his name) ,
You kitty-witty kuky-kuke... ’

I'd called out loud to bring him in,
But neighbours hear the wincing din:
My puddy’s face now red with shame,
He let’s them think it’s just a game.

And as he trundles through the door,
He glares a glare I’ve seen before –
To tell me what I am, so true:
An utter plonker, through and through!

PS. Poemhunter previously removed this poem probably
because I innocently used a common word of affection for cats!
I therefore replaced it with 'puddy'. Hopefully it won't get removed this time.

Nestling

When to summon the sky
Little nestling?
When to summon the sky?

And suffer the risk - abscond in dread -
The knowledge of sort that you'll be dead
Upon a calamitous fall;

Or taken in flight - a hawkish pounce -
Demolished as prey; your fate pronounce
You gone, and to never recall.

O when to summon the sky
Little nestling?
When to summon the sky?

Aborting a den with
Feathered bed,
Unwavering mother who
Saw you fed -
Surrendering all so
You may spread
Your reach of tentative wings!

‘Tis only instinct -
E'er the reason -
Forging life:
The Nesting Season
And the trials it brings.

So up and summon the sky
Little nestling,
Up! and summon the sky!

One More Fag

Death in the browned leaves
Transmits the stench
Into his lungs

Draws out the fluid;
Crab cells travel out
Through metastatic pain,

Become a new distortion;
Black-coated ruins
Beg for oxygen;

As a stop gap it helps;
That ‘just one more fag' talk
Did it

Pen

Could there ever be a world without a pen? -
Laying down a stolen thought from torrid minds,
Yearnings of a lonely heart,
Secret entries of a girl
That in her father's eye would
Call upon the rage of Hell …

Or simple notes - nudges
For the memory of self;
Doodles in the boredom.

I could never dream of days devoid of ink. What of
Toils of talent honed in literary cliques,
A poet in romantic storm,
A novel born of devastating yarns?

And the harmony and melody of tune -
A mighty mind of music penning out
Contortions of emotion thro' the scale
And clef to let the hand in play
Convert the purple into soulful airs,
Or rhapsodies or other lyric forms;
Musician's tears to titillate - enchant
A silent house until the end,
When approbation will resound!

I could never live a life bereft of quills -
What a barren crux for humankind -
A dearth of scholars' tomes,
An author's prose no more to share -
The belletristic want would kill the mind
In such a bleak affair.
