BON CHEW & COWCOW
to a new round of Angel Sammys and Teddys PAWETRY IN PIGTURES. This week the two picked something very special…
..scary? sad? special? … we said it is superbe for sharing some TRUE facts.
In Pawris is a special place
a cemetery named Pere Lachaise.
There are Jimmy and Honoré and Maria and such
and all who were famous butt also those not so much.
And there is a princess or let’s say just her grave,
who had a not so good life but was very brave.
And instead to give to heritage vultures her dust
she will give it to a brave guy, but he must
spend a whole year in her undercroft
although it is small and not really a loft.
The one who can stand a year without getting nuts
gets a million in cash no if’s no but’s.
A lot people came and tried to stay,
but they all failed and went away.
No one was killed that is just a canard
you can die in Paris, sure life there now is hard.
But in this crypt you can die never
butt maybe you will be on earth forever.
Would you be brave enough to give it a try?
We will watch you butt we will not stand by.
That thing has a hook what leads to a tantrum,
no one knows who will give ya that wampum…
And so we think that offer is pale
and it maybe is a modern fairytale.
would you try it dude? …. my a$$ not for a million!
FYI: there are many rumours about the crypt of Elisabeth Demidoff and a lot say it is just a week you have to stay there…come on people… who makes a million within one week with earning moneeh the hard way? no one I think, so the challenge is for 1 year… and that’s a good deal too… apart from the fact that Princess Demidoff is a vampire…
HAVE A PAWETIC THURSDAY ALL
True confession: I love cemeteries and have been to Pere LaChaise twice. It’s one of my favorites.
Michel Ney, (The bravest of the Brave) Marshal of the Empire, was laid to rest in Pere Lachaise.
I love historic cemeteries and have been to Pere Lachaise twice. It’s amazing.
A million for a year could buy a lotta steaks . . .
We’ll join you Phenny…. 😀
Deep and heavy today Phenny.
That is SUCH a fascinating story! Amazing really how long the story has circulated. I love your poem – it’s fabulous……and I too have been to Pere Lachaise – it’s a most special place indeed. Thanks for being a Poetry Thursday participant – we always look forward to your poems…….
Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too!!)
We would not even want to stay for a day. Very creepy. Cemeteries are interesting, but scary too.
Wowssers – that is a fantabulous tale to tell us generated from that image!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
That was most amazing Phenny!
Dear Overlook twins….that was an amazing story poem. WOW. Mom is a victim of skeeter vampires so I know she’d never stay there.
Oh speaking of Overlook did you see the video on UTube about a bear walking around in the lobby of the hotel where The Shining was filmed?
Hugs madi your bfff
we saw it!!! the overlook twins are angry now… a bear is more than they can bear… hope he will not stay forever&ever
What a great poem and story. I, too, have been to that cemetery but could not remember the name until your poem. BTW, whatever happened to the mouse who wanted back in the house?
it’s in la cheze now, my dad had it on the passenger seat (caged) while he drove to the bakery ;O)))
Good ending. Thanks.
What a great story! Historical cemeteries are interesting to visit. Love this memorial stone!
Easy money? We are in!
At my age, a year of my life is worth more than a million dollars.
What a great poem and an interesting story about that princess and her money.
So are you barkin’ that we could be millionaires ifin we live there fur 1 year, Phenny? Cuz, that’s a challenge we’d take. MOL Big hugs
Dezi and Raena
It’s like a game of telephone . . . at the beginning she is a princess . . . at the end, a vampire!! ;p
We wonder in whose hands the money ended up in , in the end . . .
the critters in the cottage xo
An outstanding effort today!
Wow what an interesting poem/story. We don’t think we could stay there for even a few minutes
Hazel & Mabel
Mom says if I’m naughty, she will send me there to learn a lesson. GAH! AND she will keep the money for herself.
Love and licks,
hahahaha, guess what? the mama said she will send my dad and SHE will keep the bucks LOL
Nope we won’t try living there for a million bucks. Maybe a million bucks worth of treats….ah…NO!
Shoko and Tyebe
We are lying on our back clapping our front and back paws. That is eight paws clapping. You are getting a lying ovation
Oh dudes, not for a million buckarooos!!!!

This is a great poem and the story behind it, but I would not be staying there!!!
Wowsers Boyz…that poem gave us(and Mama) goosebumps!! Spooky and Excellent!!

Great poem and what a great story! The human imagination is amazing!
Now, I, Marvelous and totally NOT interested in spending a year in a tomb, unless there are many mice that could be dispatched!
That was an awesome poem!
Yikes! We’ll just stay poor and happy….and alive!!
