Last night when I got into bed
and on the pillow laid my head
as soon as I did close my eyes
I got a rather bad surprise
for everywhere I seemed to see
dancing cats staring at me.
Blue cats, green cats, orange, red
all purr-parading round my bed
with beetle brows and tails like zeds
with scratchy claws and pointy heads.
The sand dance was what they liked best
their sickening steps kept me from my rest.
I cried out "Cats! Please! No more! Please!"
I knew I shouldn't'ave had that cheese.
