9 cat pawems

(1) a cat's tale

Grandad Cat
curls his tail
and wants to tell a tale
to his GrandKits Cats
He claws them before him
and he meows a catchy tune
that he shall
tell them a tale

But little Toby
he purrs:
No, Grand – you're such a bad story-teller
cos you only have
one tale


(2) cats in a boat

…meow, meow, meow…

nine cats in a boat
and one jumps off
and there’s none left
in the boat in the same instant –
anyone going to ask why?

No, this is no conundrum
in nuclear physics
It’s basic cat life -
they were all copycats

…meow, meow, meow…


(3) claw enforcement

Tomcat has his breakfast
of Mice Krispies
and reads his mewspapers
when Molly comes out with a snarl
in her purr-ple pajamas

she claws him all over
there’s such a caterwauling
and Tomcat emerges bewildered:
What? Why?

She’s upset that all night
her hubby Tomcat
called out for Cat Woman in his sleep
And what do I do with Tomcat
after this Claw Enforcement? thinks Molly
Oh, just hiss and make up

(4) Cat Faculty
O have you heard? -
the standards at the
Faculty of HISStory and Catssics
are slipping;
and its esteem
in the public eye declining
Have you heard?

Why?

Well,
that Faculty’s
got too many cheetahs
That’s why



(5) Cat Mum's Advice

said one cat to the other
at the playground:
“My mum always advised me
never to
climb trees
For she did say
very wisely:
‘What has bark
will bite next’”


(6) Cat Fame

said one cat to the other:
“One of these days I’m going
to the Flea Circus
and then I’ll be real famous
cos I’ll steal the whole show!”

(7) Grammar Kitten

Grammar Kitten has
learned well its lessons;
and of all the marks
it loves the comma best
for, as Grammar Kitten explains
to Ignorant Kitten:
“a comma is like us cats:
the comma’s got the clause before the pause
we’ve got the paws before the claws”

(8) vowel cat

the English tutor
sits with Tommy at the table
and Sam the cat sits opposite

today they are practicing their vowels

every time the teacher
says: “Tommy, give me a word
with a vowel or two”
Sam the cat interjects:
“Meow…meow…meow!”



(9) cat luck

for centuries
black cats have been
the subject of blame

Is it bad luck
if a black cat follows you?

Here’s the answer
to settle this mystery
once and for all:
It all depends, if you’re human or mouse
