From an American poet: Cat


by Cantinker Moss


Inspired by Robert Burns: To a Mouse and To a Louse



Oh little cat

Sitting on my lady’s hat

Can you see well

From where you’re at?

Oh little cat

Itty bitty ditty thing

So witty of a thing

A mime performing.

Oh little cat

These things, which you can see

May not particularly please

You—but if you speak?
