A LIVE cat poem!
The Nationalities of Cats J.R.McRae
White cats are queens on cushions with cream,
Dreaming of fishing eternal streams,
Wishing for dishes like pigeon pie
And how a cat might learn to fly
And chase the birds across the sky!
Tabbies are tigers who blend with the rushes,
Slipping like shadows from under the bushes,
Liquid in motion they pass,
Like wind gliding over the grass!
The Siamese sit with their eyes wary slits
Stalking their servant and master.
Their due is the homage of choicest titbits,
No cat is sleeker or faster!
Piebald cats are clowns and tumblers
With wicked grins and jaunty airs
Sauntering backyards and alleys,
Catch as catch can who dares!
But the black cat’s the creature of legend and myth
Who lives both by stealth and his wiles
He appears out of nowhere and sits by your fire
When you ask ”Where’ve you been?” he just smiles.
