Black cat


My wife’s three legged cat moves strange.

He hops about in rabbit fashion

Modifying hunting passion

In a very microcosmic range.


A car deprived him of one limb .

He’s new at this, somewhat unsteady,

But still a mouse finds him at ready

Churning with some vigor and much vim.


The mouse, of course, has greater chances.

But the cat, a bit less nimble,

In his triple legged scramble

Manages with earnest acrobatic dances.


So far, the mice are more athletic.

But the chase is entertaining

For cat and mouse and me, maintaining

Standards terpsichoric and aesthetic.
