Elvira Mistress of Felinity, here!
So what is this day all about?
"UNESCO first adopted 21 March as World Poetry Day during its 30th General Conference in Paris in 1999, with the aim of supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard.
#WorldPoetryDay is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing, and teaching of poetry....
The United Nations also has a page devoted to the event, with messages, multimedia, and resources.
As they say on their page...
"Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by revealing to us that individuals, everywhere in the world, share the same questions and feelings. Poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and, over centuries, can communicate the innermost values of diverse cultures."
We here at The Opinionated Pussycat have long shared our poetic talents and those of Daddy Kiril as well.
Our founder, Mr. Nikita, was the first; he encouraged me to develop my poetic skills and I encouraged Sneakers the Texian Tuxedo and Friday the Bearded Lady.
In honor of this day I have written something that some might consider long overdue....
Our theme song! Hee, hee!
I have dedicated it to the memory of our beloved Mr. Nikita and I hope you enjoy it.
The Opinionated Pussycats Theme Song

With apologies to The Munsters, Bob Mosher and Jack Marshall (Music, vocals & lyrics via You Tube!)
and a tip of the hat to our friend Kender MacGowan.
When you are walking past a home day or night
And you see cats in the window enjoying the view.
But you feel like something just isn’t right,
Then the Opinionated Pussycats are laughing at you.
If you should meet Daddy Kiril and his kitty family
Just forget what all you might have heard or read,
The Opinionated Pussycats will greet you willingly
And if they really like you they’ll let you rub their heads.
To visit their blog you mustn’t be afraid
By reading their posts your day it will be made.
Photos, poems, stories, opinions, and reviews all displayed
By the Opinionated Pussycats, by the Opinionated Pussycats.
If you are tired of sharing LOL cats a lot,
Silly photos, fractured English, in front of your head,
Be bold, step up, and stop posting such rot,
Discover what the Opinionated Pussycats offer instead.
Day or night they discover much to write about,
Finding stuff about which to smile and frown.
There are many things to meow, purr and hiss about,
For sure the Opinionated Pussycats will go to town.
Any time you dare peek through their window screen,
You will be amused and laugh at such an adorable scene.
Because Daddy Kiril treats each cat like a Queen,
Loving his pretty girls, the beautiful Opinionated Pussycats.
Like this? Daddy Kiril has one, too!
