poetry corner / Walking in front of me
« Last post by Jade Sinapu on June 19, 2018, 07:53:28 pm »
I will try to keep this terse.
This poem has 2 lines of mildly suggestive verse.
It also has one weak swear word .
In other areas, things may have gotten blurred

I admit my style is probably rather unfashionable and simple, but it is what rolls off my flapping tongue.
I am not a professional writer.  I was just having fun.

Spoiler: show

Walking in Front of Me


These woods are the place I like to be
With you walking in front of me.
The sunlight burning bright in your fur.
Quietly, you continue to purr...
... As you walk in front of me.

The heat of sunlight soaking deep into your fine coat.
Vaporizing oils that float on the breeze you make.
I am surrounded by the odor of you, floating in your lake.
Hoping it will last, pray nothing will capsize my boat.

Your silky black tail, with its gentle curve so right.
I declare, is one of the prettiest things in sight!
The way it connects with a wonderful bump,
And whats beneath..oops...tripped over a stump!

Your paws land on the forest floor without a sound.
Panting with frustration, I continue to pound.

You are taking me to your private place only you know.
A place where you say the white rapids flow.
Between smoothed boulders worn by time.
A place, you assure, that is sublime.
The hunting is easy, the air clean.
I bet you live there, like a queen.
The trail is long, but the view is pretty.
As I walk behind this fluffy, cute, kitty.

Looking down, your claws retracted.  A relaxed feline.
Looking down, mine are blunt and fixed, typical canine.
How much farther is it there?  I whine.
Are we walking the straightest line?

"What's the hurry, do you have some place to be?
Why not walk this path with me?"
No, no.  No plans have I.
Harder, I guess I must try.

Do you have anything to eat once we get there?
Perhaps a crisp apple, juicy peach, or ripe pear?

Hey you dropped something, what is this?
"Hmm...must be the key to my cabin up ahead.
We can go there.. or keep walking instead..."
Cabin please, I sure need to take a piss

"Cant you use the outdoors?"
No, I'm a dog of the indoors.
What, you think I walk on all fours?

"I do sometimes, its only primal.
For survival, its often vital.
You can run faster,
To escape disaster.
You know like an animal?
Certainly that is something understandable?
Hey speaking of, I could show you how to live like a big cat.
Anyway, were almost there!  Let's cut the chitchat!"

Fitting the key to the lock, it easily turns.
inside I see, a light that burns
Candles all around, already lit
You had this planned, now I get-it!

A dinner table, a comfy bed.
This place is much more than a shed!
What a cozy place... just yourself?
Kind of reminds me of my old place in Guelph.

Well, well what's for dinner?
That long walk has made me thinner!
Meat all around if you please!
Canines are lactose intolerant, seriously, no cheese!

Set before me, plates of plenty!
Meat of all kinds, maybe twenty!
Does anything excite me more than good food?
Except, perhaps, hedgehogs stewed?

A gust of wind blows the windows ajar.
Now where did that come from? Bizarre!
The candles are out!  I can't see!
Oooof!  Dang!  I bumped my knee!

"The food has spilled all over the place!
How ever will I clean this space?"
Let's use our raspy tongues, you know what to do!
Just slurp it up, don't forget to chew!

"Okay, but what about us?  We are covered in vittles."
Well, that's easy!
Same as the floor; just don't hold the giggles!

Political Correctness

Just because something bothers another person and they think it should be removed, does NOT mean that I am offended by it and I think it should be removed.

In other news.........

Donald Trump wants a 6th U.S. military force: the Space Force.
https://www.tmj4.com/news/national/trump-says-pentagon-directed-to-launch-space-force-branch-of-military
Seriously?  :o Sounds like more of a "Space Farce" to me.  :D

Need to say it, but we don't need a 6th military force for the United States. We've got enough problems in the U.S. (and/or the world) right now that need taking care of without having to worry about how the heck we're going to try and come up with another military force. We've already got the U.S. Space Command which is part of the U.S. Air Force. They already watch and handle any U.S. military space activities, so there's no need for more "duplicity" by creating another military space organization.
Where the heck are we supposed to come up with the money and materials to create another military force anyway? Oh wait, that's right, by cutting back on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Education, and other programs and services that Americans need.  >:( Way to go, Trumptard! What the hell does Trump expect? That we're going to get invaded soon by "illegal extraterrestrial alien immigrants"? So he wants to create another military space force to protect our solar system's borders?  :D

President Trump has likely grabbed a hornets nest by picking on
little kids. Yet he still continues to blame it on everyone but him self.
It's Trump who made the decision to seperate kids from their parents.
Even to send parents back to their country without their children.

I think if Trump is backed up to a wall and his people tell him he
has lost. He will changed his tune claiming he ihas to save the
children from the bad democrats. And his  supporters will
cheer.

Trump doesn't want the media to take pictures, he doesn't
want the media to see anything. He wants to hide this even
from those who support him. He knows video's would bring his
plans down along with him and the GOP.

furries on furry / Re: your most hated thing about furry.

One big issue I dislike about furry and try to change  is how  furries  deal with  the younger and older members  outside the demographic. We had  and incident  at anther fur group shunning  and insulting and elderly member. Then I feel general (not   specifically adult  like meting at a bar) furcons  should serve the whole community. I do not by banning under 18 reason about insurance but    lack  of social skill of  20 - 30 somthings  leaders  to deal with those outside the peer group. For  me a  a Christian is  an 18+ 21+ con is usually a red flag to stay away. My only  only experience  with  18+ multi genre  convention is people getting drunk and acting  immoral is they want to. The idea of  adult does not mean acting as a mature  adult.


If I was  running a con my policy is  leaders  will serve the  community, young and old  or get out and if you do not like kids ruining around then I can suggest stay home of find a bar.

I agree. Many furs when they get interviewed by certain media go about how furry is welcoming. But to who? Seems old furs like me seem to be ignored by the younger furs who don't talk to me and only seem to stick to themselves.

I, as a new furry who's already getting grey, realize that the older ones are the ones who make it possible for me to enjoy the fandom.  I personally would interact with anyone, if they wanted.  :)

We needed to weld stuff in the prototype shop. The factory tool room is busy, so I found and set up an old welder that was sitting in the corner. It took a lot of finagling, but eventually I got all the setting right and could make a decent weld. To paraphrase my boss:

"Wow, that thing actually works?!"

I spent my day at a local animal rescue centre, playing with a 7 year old female malamute named Kimba.

My friends are adopting a 7 year old male eurasier from there (a super-fluffy, medium-sized Spitz breed from Germany) called Kronus, and have their home visit to check their house is suitable on Thursday.
