A CAT IN THE LIBRARY

A cat in the library

reading in my diary

to learn what I have done

with the hot cross buns.

I gave one to mousy

who thought it lousy.

I gave another to a goose

who insisted to choose

the part in the middle

away from his piddle.

I gave another to monkey

he ate it with honey.

I gave another to my dog

he gawffed it like a hog.

The cat turned the page

to learn the schedule to cage

his friend the parrot

enticed with a carrot.

So my schedule was known,

it was time to go home

to warn his friend the parrot,

saved him reading the Tarot .
