Our Cat


a poem by Myra Dryden

Contrary to convention

Our cat

Doesn't sit on a mat

Gazing at children

In alphabetical order,

He's too proud for that.


Rather, he prances about

And hates you to shout

When he won't go out;

Or while you say your prayers

He curls up in a chair,

And stares and stares.


I can tell you that
