The Cats of Montmartre

Are on the Prowl

 

 

Hissing and spitting

Claws are bared

Arrogantly stalking

Beware Beware

What’s yours is theirs

They have decided

Silently they pounce

So fast you just can’t fight it

Purring and preening

They display their prey

Bloodied and bleeding

As they prance away

 

 

Later they sit daintily

Licking their claws

Sheathing those weapons

In silky paws

It’s the spotlight they want

The attention they crave

So they must attack

Whatever stands in their way

Though seeming to sleep

They are ever alert

For any intrusion

On territory and turf

 

 

Cats are selfish

Everything is all about them

What they want, they get

It’s not if, it’s when

They don’t change

Don’t lose their claws

They shine and sharpen

They keep them warm

So if there’s a tasty dish

Or warm spot in the sun

You better take care

You better run

claws sharper than thorns.”

Eventually it becomes a cat.”
