Clarence, the old ginger tom,
is quite a funny cat
preferring a blanket of stars at night
and diving into this and that.
You’ll hear him scowl at passing cars
or see him stare up at moon and stars
and although he likes to snooze at night
that doesn’t stop him having fights
When on his way – he’ll walk for miles
but locals always look and smile
as he waits at pavement – like highway code
on his way safely to another abode.
He knows all of the local shops,
and to their owners back doors he pops
He likes his fish, and likes his meat
and fish guts are a special treat.
If desperate – he’ll go and catch a mouse
and leave it someplace in the house…
But you’ll only know – and only hail
if you find that mouse’s tail
And when he’s pampered and well fed
he’ll move his striped paws off to bed.
Dreaming of fish and birds and that’s
Clarence – our dear old pussy cat.
