Steel Saber, A New Tabot's Peak Neighbor

Steel  Saber came down from the mount’n
And gazed at the really weird fount’n
It was a dog dish he was seeing
That’s why he felt like peeing
His prowess he felt like a flout’n

Of this town he’d heard stories
About shifters in all their glory
Some were cats and some were dogs
Some turtles and assorted frogs
Yet they lacked those with heads so hoary

He liked the town’s feel
The people seemed real
But he missed the age of his teens
A time when none preened
And the humans could be his next meal

Should he eat Barney or Fred
Or leave them just shy of dead
Then to slake his thirst
And show them his worst
When he took Betty and Wilma to bed


 Wow, clearly I've been neglecting my poetry of late that this post would come out not just as a poem, but a really weird limerick!  

Yeah, who am I trying to kid...weird or not, I love limericks.  :D

How about ya'll, feel in the mood to share a little ditty about the Saber-toothed devil in the picture above?  Give it a whirl and remember a limerick follows the standard (aabba) rhyme scheme.

Note to self: don't read Serena's lymricks while drinking a Pepsi... [I think as I wipe soda of the computer screen]

:D Hehehe Thanks Rebecca! Here's to hoping that Pepsi didn't come out of your nose. ~wink~

Welcome to Talbot's Peak, Steel Saber. If Kytaira visits anytime soon she'll shift into her Saber-tooth Tigress mode and give you a bit of sporting fun.

Omgosh... Serena, that tickled my funny bone big time!!! If I'd been drinking anything while reading, it would have splattered all over.

I'm no good at limericks, or I'd give it a go. I love reading them and hearing them read... but, my poetic abilities don't go there.

No limerical attempts from me either ... all I can hear in my head right now is Johnny Cash and a steel guitar. Maybe the DJs will play "The Ballad of Steel Saber" on the Morning Hair Ball.

Rebecca said...

I can do Dr. Suse style silly poetry but my lymricks invariably end ups sounding like "there once was a girl named Venis, whos' body was shaped like a..."

Savanna Kougar said...

The Ballad of Steel Saber ~ that's a good one!

Serena Shay said...

Thanks Savanna! Mmmm, Steel's tail is wagging at the thought of meeting the fine lady Saber tigress, Kytaira. He's imagining all the trouble they can get into... ;)

Serena Shay said...

Oooh, "The Ballad of Steel Saber" on the Morning Hair Ball would be awesome! Steel's already a fan, but a ballad to him would be icing on the cake. :D

Serena Shay said...

LMAO...Rebecca, that's a classic start to a limerick!

...she wrapped it in plastic
thinking she looked quite fantastic
And then changed her name to Reamus

I just can't help myself.... :D
