Bella’s Long Weekend

Now I am sure you’re wondering
What Bella did each day;
While you were up at Indian Arm
At home she didn’t stay.

On Saturday she went to space
In search of fashion trends;
Although the stores weren’t up to much
She made some starfish friends.

She swam across a tranquil sea
Under the starry skies;
Around and round the moon she went
She never saw sunrise.

She cloned a pig with Pegasus
So that the pig could fly;
She flew it to the sun and back –
It didn’t crispify.

She starred on Sunday’s Muppets Show
When they were out on tour;
Miss Piggy tried to upstage her,
They settled for a draw.

She read a Song of Ice and Fire
Then wrote the last two books;
She made sure dragons ruled the world
As barbecuing cooks.

She rode upon a unicorn
That thought it was the last;
But Bella found its family
Within the sea amassed.

On Monday Bella brokered peace
Across the Middle East;
She solved their problems with her purrs,
Hostilities then ceased.

She fought Medusa, Gorgon Queen,
With hissing snakes for hair;
But Bella wasn’t petrified,
She froze it with her stare.

She learned the truth of alchemy
Transmuting gold from lead;
She made her fortune, piled it high,
She used it as her bed.

So now you know what Bella did
While you were up the creek;
She’s really very tired now –
She might just sleep the week.


Have you ever stopped to wonder
What Bella does each day?
She doesn’t only nap and groom –
She ventures out to play.

She plays that she’s a pirate cat
Upon the stormy seas;
When she encounters crews of mice
She captures all their cheese.

She’s voyaged to the ocean floor
To catch a tasty dish;
Instead she played some hide and seek
With crabs and cuttlefish.

By rocketship she’s been to space
And swam among the stars;
She’s been across the Milky Way,
She found there’s life on Mars.

She’s starred up on the silver screen
In Technicolor shows;
You’ll find her paws in Hollywood
By Marilyn Monroe’s.

She’s entered poker tournaments
And put her chips all in;
Whatever cards that she was dealt
She bluffed her way to win.

She plays the drums and lead guitar
In her band “Tortoise Hell”;
When on her European tour
She played the Swiss cowbell.

Around the world in eighty days
In a hot air balloon;
She spent at least two thirds of them
Just singing to the moon.

But every day when you return
You’ll find her waiting there;
It’s where she likes it most of allĀ –
At home, within your care.
