more Sunday morning ha’ sonnets

Sort of in response to Stephen and his cats:

______

Coffee is brewed,
animals fed,
a plate of food
and back to bed!
Snuggled down, and
a book in hand –
Happy Sunday!

__________

I’ve had cats, and they always got fed first in my experience. Pigs aren’t so privileged: 

_________

The winter chill
keeps me abed.
Above the sill
ears, then a head
slowly arise,
and in surprise,
ask “how ‘bout me”?

___________

As Churchill said: “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”  She doesn’t get breakfast first, but she adds a tang of guilt to the marmalade.

  1. Happy Sunday! Nice ha’sonnets! and nice Sunday, at least for you. The pig, it seems, can only be a voyeur to your breakfast. 😉
