Nightmare of the Dancing Cats

entry picture
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.

Very well written and ticklish as a cat's whisker!

Hi, Ann. Especially with 'jokes' poems, keep your rhythm clean. Quite "Suess-y' this one. And I'm not sure I've spelled that name right. Good grief!
